About

Bio

I'm a board certified internist and current cardiology fellow in my last year of specialty training. I like giving people honest answers based on my experience and education. I try to practice honest medicine with the best interest of my patients and society in mind.

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.
