Philosophy of care

I want to be able to deliver the best possible care to you in the most effective way. I emphasize preventive medicine – especially dietary and lifestyle changes – as the initial step for treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease and other related complications.

Why I entered medicine

I chose to become a physician because I can help people and help alleviate their pain and suffering as much as possible.

Community involvement

I volunteered extensively during my undergraduate trainings in hospitals and clinics in California. Here in the Lehigh Valley, I serve as member of Bahá’í faith spiritual assemblies in Bethlehem and Bethlehem Township. In the last 23 years, I have volunteered as a teacher, educator and lecturer in the Lehigh Valley community. Throughout my career, I have mentored students across many levels, from high school and pre-med students to students in medical school and medical residents.

Personal interests

I enjoy walking, jogging, spending time with family and friends, and participating in community and volunteer activities.
