About

Bio

I have always wanted to be a doctor. My mother had a rare disorder called Wilson's disease. As a small child my brother and rode the bus with my mother to her appointments which were always in teaching hospitals. I watched as she was examined, and the residents and medical students were call in to see the findings associated with her disease. For most of these doctors in training, this was the only time they would see these findings. It was here that I got my vision. I too wanted to become a doctor in training. Thanks Mom! I absolutely love what I do. I love interacting with patients, and I get to travel to impoverished areas to and participate in free clinics. I can"t imagine being anything else!
