General Info

About me

Since I was in elementary school I always knew I wanted to become a doctor. My father was a pediatrician and I always enjoyed going with him to the hospital. I find much satisfaction in relating to people and being able to help them. Being a Pediatrician gives me the opportunity to help children which is something I consider invaluable. Thanks to my subspecialty as a Neonatologist, I am able to assist in childbirth. To continually witness and offer my help during the miracle of life is a self-motivator and something I truly value as a doctor.
