If you’re a Smoker, this Dr doesn’t show any interest or desire to help you at all. He turns a deaf ear to Smokers. If you ask him a question regarding your Kidney’s, or anything regarding what he’s supposed to Specialize in, his answer is, “Quitting Smoking will solve ALL your problems”. This Dr told me I had NO BLOOD in my Urinalysis. When I was checking out, I was given my Urinalysis Report from the Nurse, which, it had a LARGE amount of Blood in my Urinalysis. That makes him a Liar, too

About Me

Care Philosophy

As a nephrologist, I encourage the patient to take an active part in his care by keeping him well informed of his treatment options. I take into account the person as a whole, which is why I am also a proponent of a compassionate multidisciplinary team approach in addressing the person's health needs.
