Philosophy of care

As your doctor, my goal is to help you get your life back! Pain medicine is always focused on reducing your level of pain to restore your functionality. I believe in the philosophy that chronic pain may stem from physical, emotional and/or spiritual components. I work to address each of these components to improve your quality of life. Using minimally invasive spinal procedures and other leading-edge techniques, I promise to provide you with the highest standard of care.

Why I entered medicine

Ever since I was young, I always sympathized with the needs of others and sought to ease their discomfort, whether it was physical or emotional. I always knew that I would end up in a field that allowed me to encompass both aspects of care.

Community involvement

I find it rewarding to volunteer my medical services in my local community as well as around the world by attending medical brigades and missions. We have high-quality medical care in this country, and I believe it is important to share this privilege with those who are less fortunate.

Personal interests

I enjoy traveling, playing recreational sports (basketball, tennis, golf and soccer), indulging in the intricacies of architecture and aviation, and above all, spending time with my loved ones.
