Practices In: Westmont
Patients Seen: Adults

Since I was a child, I’ve always want­ed to help peo­ple. One of the things that attract­ed me towards med­i­cine is observ­ing the com­pas­sion that doc­tors exhib­it­ed when inter­act­ing with their patients. After help­ing my grand­moth­er recov­er from a stroke and surgery, I was inspired to focus on senior care. One of my favorite parts of get­ting to inter­act with seniors is just sit­ting down and hav­ing a con­ver­sa­tion with them! I great­ly val­ue open and hon­est com­mu­ni­ca­tion with my patients and it’s amaz­ing at what you can learn from the wealth of their vast expe­ri­ences! I also find it immense­ly sat­is­fy­ing to help them live their gold­en years as inde­pen­dent­ly and with the high­est qual­i­ty of life as possible.

Clinical Interests

I’m dual board cer­ti­fied in fam­i­ly med­i­cine and geri­atrics. My inter­ests lean towards geri­atrics, pal­lia­tive care and hos­pice. I com­mon­ly deal with geri­atric issues such as demen­tia, delir­i­um, falls and frailty. I also believe that as our seniors move towards the end of their lives, they are treat­ed with com­pas­sion and in a man­ner that pre­serves their dig­ni­ty through effec­tive pal­lia­tive care practice.

Personal Interests

I like to read and lis­ten to med­ical pod­casts. I like to watch and go to bas­ket­ball games. I also enjoy trav­el­ing. My recent trips include Charleston, South Car­oli­na, Moroc­co and the Taj Mahal have been among my favorites so far and I hope to explore New Zealand one day!
