  • “Being part of this extraordinary journey is a reward in itself.”

For as long as I can remember, I've had one calling: taking care of children. Therefore, at medical school, pediatrics was the only choice for me.

My mother, an ENT surgeon, inspired me to pursue my interest.

It is heartwarming to watch a vulnerable baby born yesterday grow into a wobbly toddler today and evolve into a confident teenager tomorrow. Being part of this extraordinary journey is a reward in itself.

My approach is simple. Since every mom and dad holds the key to their child's health, I involve the parents in the decision-making process. Evidence-based medicine, current knowledge and past experience help me bring relief to each sick child and return a smile to his or her face. Finally, by promoting a balanced lifestyle with healthy diet and exercise, I encourage long-lasting health and happiness for all my patients.

Helping children and parents is simply rewarding, energizing and inspirational, and I shall continue to relish it for a long time.
