About Me

I have lived in Saint Marys GA for almost 15 years since I migrated here in the United States. My family enjoys outdoor activities like hiking and biking and roller coasters. We are a huge wrestling and Jui Jitsu family.

My philosophy of care is to treat your patient as if they are your family, try to deliver both patient-centered and patient-driven care. This way patient feels valued and make them feel easier to comply with plan of care.
