Philosophy of care

I want to not only provide high quality care for you, but also develop a long-lasting relationship with you and your family. I always treat you as a human being with an ailment, not a patient number, room number or disease process. I always approach the management of my patients with the thought as to what I would want if this was my mother or father, or wife, or children.

Why I entered medicine

During my high school years, my sister fell ill with spinal cord cancer and spent the better part of 2.5 years hospitalized at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. We, being a small family, spent day and night in the hospital with her. It was during this time that I truly became enthralled with the field of medicine. Since I would sleep nights and spent my weekends there, the residents became my friends and began taking me on my rounds and teaching me. This provided the first exposure to practice of medicine. I then went on to medical school and obtained a residency at Columbia University. It was there that I met a wonderful teacher and mentor, Dr. Glenda Garvey, who in turn referred me to Dr. Mark Josephson to learn the field of electrophysiology. I could not have asked for a better education and owe my knowledge of electrophysiology to Dr. Josephson.

Community involvement

I have participated in several medical mission trips to South Africa, Haiti and Nicaragua.

Personal interests

I enjoy music and soccer.
