I believe in staying healthy to increase quality of life and quality of life of people I encounter in the community and in my practice as patients. I've chosen family medicine because it has given me the liberty to have a wide knowledge of medicine and pick the areas that interest me the most and indulge myself into it. Also being the first line of contact with people has given me the pleasure to see amazing changes in terms of a sustainable quality of life, energy, health and well-being
