“I treat all my patients and my own family members in just the same way, with care and compassion.”

About Me

I practiced as an MD overseas. I continued my education and pursuit of medicine in the US, and entered the NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine in New York to understand the basic principles of body unity & self-regulation. 

My passion and my purpose are to provide care for patients with longitudinal, acute, and ambulatory diseases while serving as their primary medical support system. As a DO and MD, I am grateful for the opportunity to support my patients while educating and advocating for them on their journey towards health.
