About Me

Care Philosophy

I am a Hospitalist; thus, I do not practice in the office setting. I care for my patients in the hospital setting, from admission in the Emergency Department to discharge from the hospital. I attend to my patients with them and their family as the center core of care. I believe in providing the best personalized care to them, to be as available for their concerns and needs.
