Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine: I was working as an accountant, sitting all day, eating unhealthy snacks and meals, gaining weight, and listening to co-workers complain about their weight and overall health. That's when I decided that I wanted to be healthy and help other people be healthy.
What patients should expect when they come to an appointment with me: I will treat patients the way I want my mother or myself to be treated when we are patients. Patients should expect me to listen, validate their concerns, take the time to be thorough, and treat them with respect.
What I do when I’m not seeing patients: When I'm not seeing patients or doing administrative work, I'm enjoying my cats, hiking, yoga, reading historical fiction, studying history and learning about the world, travelling, and making photo books of my trips.
