Philosophy of care

My philosophy of care is patient centered. I will provide and explain to you all the available options for your condition and help you decide what’s best for you.

Why I entered medicine

Growing up in a developing country, I have always taken pride in improving people’s lives. This is what ultimately led me to medicine and eventually surgery. I love the quick improvement surgery offers patients with complex surgical problems.

Personal interests

In my spare time I enjoy playing soccer, watching movies and taking trips with my family.
