"Experiences of my early childhood formed my decision to pursue a career in medicine. By the time I was six years old I had already lost family members to cancer and complications of diabetes. I grew up wondering if anything could have prevented their deaths; consequently this made me determined to become a doctor.
In medical school I found endocrinology incredibly interesting – I loved the science of it. Endocrinology is truly an internist’s sub-specialty. Every organ system can be affected and the same disease can manifest in a variety of ways. Endocrinology integrates medicine and patient education - concepts that are central to my professional values.
One of the many important lessons I have learned from my training is that patients carry the burden of managing their chronic illness. That's why it's important to empower and educate patients about their chronic disease. I like to treat each of my patients as an individual and respect their background and lifestyle. I listen well and I try to provide an individual treatment plan to meet my patients' needs.
I have a special interest in women’s health and disease prevention. I look forward to participating in community health screenings and other forms of public health education.”
