I treat every patient as an individual and not an illness or wellness. I see them as part of my extended family; I care about children from their moment of birth to the time they graduate into adulthood. It's incredibly rewarding when my patients grow up and have children of their own, who then become my patients.
I always listen to my patients no matter their age, and never let my MD title get in the way of trusting my instincts. Medicine is not just a clinical role, it is an art.
My maternal grandmother believed in and practiced unconditional love. She encouraged me to set my priorities toward helping others. She's why I got into medicine; I'm here to help others. I approach medicine as a profession, a calling and a healing art.
