I grew up in a poor household, both my parents were school bus drivers, thus going to college meant hard work through studying and landing a scholarship to medical school. I went to a good high school, I applied for college to get a scholarship and that’s how I got into medicine.
I enjoy being a physician and intensivist and get a great sense of satisfaction knowing I can help patients and their families in often very difficult times. I also take great care in making great first impressions; I like to talk, so typically a patient and their family become very comfortable with me as we go down a medical path together.
I ensure my patients know I’m here to help and we make decisions together; I also utilize the comprehensive team and advanced technology at Blessing to ensure we meet our medical goals. I achieve great outcomes due to my training and experience which were very rigorous; since I’ve treated many patients in my past that experience greatly helps me treat patients today.
After a conversation with my patients and their families, they quickly realize I am a regular person they can easily talk to and I just happen to be their dedicated doctor.
