  • Biography


    “Ever since I was a young child, I was determined to become a doctor. Helping people reach their health goals appealed to me. It was, however, after watching a close family member deal with the devastation of colon cancer that I knew without a doubt I wanted to specialize in the field of gastroenterology. Gastroenterology is one of the most multifarious and rewarding specialties. It enables me to combine cognitive and manual skills to perform minimally invasive procedures to help prevent, diagnose and treat illnesses.
    “Although the field of medicine constantly faces challenges, there’s something very special about being a doctor. All physicians take the Hippocratic Oath upon graduating from medical school. We promise to help the sick, and in doing so, we shoulder a profound responsibility. As a specialist, I can perform procedures, teach and take care of patients on a long-term basis. It is truly satisfying to know I have made a significant and positive change in a person’s life. The years of education, training and hard work that led me down this path have provided the ability to focus on one goal: attending to the patient in front of me, no matter what the future of medicine holds.”
