About

Bio

Board-certified in Internal Medicine. My clinical interests are patient safety, reducing preventable adverse events, and increasing efficiency in inpatient hospital settings. Also I am fascinated by healthcare IT and all of the benefits that data science offers. I would like to help patients online in any way that I can - I understand the tremendous anxiety and fear that one confronts when faced with illness and uncertainty.

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.

It's possible: The vitreous humor is ideally a clear gel like material that allows light to pass perfectly through to the retina. Floaters are essentially debris inside the vitreous. Sometimes they settle down and go out of your visual axis so you don't notice them - other times they continue to be an annoyance. You should be examined by an ophthalmologist to make sure you don't have a retinal detachment.

See a doctor: Differential diagnosis is too broad for anyone to be able to help you online. Abdominal pain radiating to the back and sides could be anything from appendicitis, kidney stones to cholelithiasis (gallbladder stones). Pain radiating to the left side of your chest could be musculoskeletal, gastric, or cardiac. No way to know. Please go and see a doctor ASAP.

Likely not: Glaucoma usually causes painless vision loss over a long period of time & the visual field ceases to exist (like trying to see your hand from the back of your head). You're describing 'flashes' due to irritation or excitement of your retina (the film in the camera of your eyes). Although very common, some people have a risk of retinal detachment. See an ophthalmologist to have a dilated exam.
