About Reviews

No comments available. ?

I wanted to be a doctor for as long as I can remember. Growing up in a family of physicians, some of my fondest memories are of casual family dinner conversations about the vagaries of human disease and the evolving options for treatment. Dinner guests were often taken aback by these little chats, but I loved them. Medicine has been a part of my life since I was a child, and I've never regretted my choice of profession.

About my practice

In pathology, I have found a field that allows me to be an active part of the clinical team for a wide variety of specialties. I enjoy engaging with my clinical colleagues to provide the best possible medical care to our members. While I have directed interests in cytology, placental pathology, and breast pathology, I also relish being a generalist and seeing the breadth of medicine.

How I thrive

Like many of us, I thrive when I achieve balance in life. Young children at home provide me with laughter and never-ending activity, and each day I carve out time for exercise, reading, and the occasional nap.
