I have been practicing Endocrinology and Diabetes for the last 30 years. I trained in a rigorous academic institution with experience in teaching, bench and clinical research, but my focus today and over the past 20 years or so is to provide the best possible care to the person sitting across from me in the clinic. I follow guidelines provided by professional societies, but I also remain conscious of the fact that I am treating a patient with a disease and not just a disease, which means I take into consideration the philosophy, system of beliefs and world view of the patient in decision-making as well. I function as part of a team that includes a Diabetes Nurse Educator, nurses, medical assistants, receptionists and other physicians in the practice. I owe my success to them as much as to my patients who teach me daily the virtues of resilience, dignity in the face of adversity and courage. I have been humbled to receive over the years Top Doctor Awards, and Patient's Choice Awards, and those provide me with an incentive to do better in my work. Patients today are exposed to a wealth of information from the Internet and other sources, and in the ever-shrinking time that we have with them, part of our job must be to help them navigate this labyrinth of information and make the best decision for their health. In order to do that, a trusting relationship must be established, and this is especially important in managing chronic diseases such as Diabetes where adherence to a plan of care is essential to prevent long-term complications. I like to think that my background which exposed me to different cultures allows me to be more open-minded about new ideas. I enjoy supplementing my knowledge by being an avid reader and I like traveling whenever possible. Just as I advise my patients, I try to exercise regularly and have a healthy life-style to enjoy my family as long as I can.
