About

Bio

I have practiced emergency medicine all my life. We truly live in a global world. I grew up in Canada and thank all my wonderful teachers at University of Western Ontario Medical School for providing me with world class medical training. I completed a remarkable residency in emergency medicine at Detroit Receiving Hospital. Then completed full training with Fellowship in emergency medicine at University of Calgary and have moved to United States since. Having practiced emergency medicine over two decades, I have seen much but still feel humbled at greatness of our body and mind. I am reminded that we are all brothers and sisters. That patient I saw today has a mother, father and all those close to them. That patient could have been your mother, father, your son, or daughter. We all share in our indomitable human spirit and wonderful physical body and mind.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
