My Passion for Healthcare

Medicine was a natural choice for me because I have always loved to be challenged. I have always loved puzzles, and in medicine, every patient is a unique puzzle. I love being a pulmonologist specifically because it combines my love of treating patients with my interest in radiology and procedures. It is my passion to provide compassionate and individualized care for all of my patients and their families, and it is my goal to always optimize patients' quality of life and overall health.
