Philosophy of care

Care for me means looking after your well-being in both health and sickness. It involves encouraging you to do the right things and take corrective actions during times of ill health. I empower my patients to make decisions.

Why I entered medicine

Medicine is a field standing at the junction of biological science, social science and statistics. It gave me an opportunity to help my community. This work is noble and both emotionally and intellectually rewarding.

Community involvement

I am involved in raising awareness about lung cancer and smoking cessation programs.

Personal interests

I enjoy soccer and running, as well as learning more about philosophy and exercise physiology.
