Practice Philosophy
“My philosophy as a pediatrician is to value each and every patient that I encounter and treat them with compassion and understanding. I listen to parents and patients as I know they are my partners in providing the best possible healthcare.

I was born and raised in a developing nation where the barrier to healthcare is mostly due to poverty and lack of education. I witnessed poor health outcomes which could have been prevented had there be been access to health services. This made me realize that I wanted to be in a field where I could contribute, wherever I am, in providing healthcare to one of the most vulnerable: the children.”
