From the Doctor:
I usually begin my day with family worship. I also enjoy jogging,listening to music and visiting nature parks for scenic walks.
I believe it is important to treat each patient as I would want to be treated. This can be achieved by actively listening to their concerns and empowering them with the knowledge needed to make the best decisions for their health. For the past 10 years, I have provided medical care to patients from newborn to geriatric age. Prior to that, I served as a chief resident at an Orlando hospital, where I oversaw medical students during their clinical rotations. I have volunteered to provide free medical care to indigents, and was a medical missionary in Chiapas, Mexico, where I helped provide gynecologic care for the underserved women of the area.
Having a Masters in Public health, community service is one of my dearest passions. I have participated in mission trips,community health fairs and health education projects and plan to continue to do.
