About

Bio

Board Certified in Internal Medicine. I have a private practice in Las Vegas. I enjoy taking care of patients in the hospital as well, and it is not unusual to see me rounding in the hospitals after I see my office patients.

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.
