Taking care of people has always been important to me in my life starting with my grandparents and parents. With my father also being a physician, I was able to witness the importance of caring for patients and how much satisfaction this brings. As I began my medical studies and training, I realized that anesthesiology and pain management were my strong interest. Seeing people regain their life through a pain free existence became essential. My strength as a physician is my compassion for the patient and my genuine concern for their well being. I prided myself on being there when a patient has been told there is nothing else that can be done to help them. My expertise, experience and training has allowed me to find just that one more treatment plan or procedure to give the patient a healthy life free of pain. I look at every patient as a person first and treat them as I would like my family member to be treated. I find it a privilege and an honor to practice medicine and change lives for the better.
