About

Bio

I'm a doubly board certified Infectious Diseases specialist and Internal Medicine doctor. I have an interest in rabies and rabies exposures, travel medicine, vaccines and other infectious diseases. I think it is a special privilege to be a doctor and I like to help whenever I can.

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.
