About

Bio

I am board-certified in Internal Medicine, pulmonary, and critical care medicine. I am currently a clinical assistant professor of Medicine at Florida International University and I have worked in emergency medicine for past 12 years.

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.
