About

Bio

I am an infectious diseases specialist with over 20 years experience. I treat all infectious diseases, from fevers, high white blood cell counts to pneumonia, sepsis, blood poisoning and AIDS. I am in solo practice with a nurse practitioner helping me. I try my best to treat every patient as if they were my family member.

Specialties
