About

Bio

I am a Pediatrician, trained in New York and working in Houston, Texas. I love my job. I have special interest in Pediatric Dermatology and Nutrition. I am starting my practice in fall this year after practicing in a group for almost two years, with the hope that I can provide quality care to the children in my community. I can promise the parents about my utmost commitment to what's best for their children.

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.
