Service to humanity has been my childhood dream and thus I embarked on the medical profession years ago. My interests in personal, comprehensive and continuing care for the individual and the community, disease prevention and preventive medicine led me to choose a career in Family Medicine. I believe in working with the family and addressing the whole patient, influencing the well being of the patient through active participation with them. I reach out to patients, immersing myself in understanding them in the context of their family and community, to achieve the best health outcome.
