I came to the US in 2001 to pursue a career in pediatrics , finished pediatric residency in 2004 then did a year of pediatric infectious diseases. I decided then to stick with general pediatrics as it's my passion. I obtained my American Board Pediatric certification in 2005 and has been in private practice since then. I have worked as part of a group in the past . This year is different and special to me because I decided to have my own private practice to be able to have one on one relationship with my patients. I'm excited to do it and ready for the challenge .
