About

Bio

I am a Board Certified Family Medicine Physician and an Urgent Care Specialist, I have more than 15 years of experience. In my free and busy time, I work with a charity organization to do free health fairs where we provide health screenings and vaccinations and much more to needy people, and that gives me true happiness and joy.

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.
