About

Bio

I am a Board Certified Internal Medicine, Infectious Diseases and Obesity Medicine Physician. I completed an MS in Immunology as well. My professional values relate to being highly science based, and simultaneously being very patient centered and compassionate. My objective is to provide healthful information and care to people in a way that makes their lives better, not just their clinical condition. My greatest strengths are compassion and a deep spectrum of knowledge that combine the science and art of medicine. I follow Dr. Francis Peabody's advice. “. . . For the secret of the care of the patient is in caring for the patient.” I wish you the best and welcome the opportunity to work with you in helping you in any way that I can.
