About

Bio

I practice at one of medical schools in the USA. As internists at academic setting, my job is to solve mysterious cases that others could not have. I treat all my patients as if they are family member.

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.
