Meet your Doctor

What led you to become a doctor or choose your focus of medicine?
My father is a physician. Because of him, I always wanted to become a doctor. I can remember back to when I was 5 years old telling people I wanted to be a doctor. As I grew, I was fortunate to be able to travel with my family doing missions work around the world. One of my fondest memories was watching a woman in Swaziland (Africa) undergo a C-Section for triplets. It was one of the driving forces in my desire to become a doctor.

What about your line of work do you find most rewarding and why?
Most women are very excited about pregnancy and their birth. This excitement is infectious. The miracle of life after conception and the miracle of birth is truly rewarding.

How would a patient describe you?
I am a man of faith, compassionate and positive.

What’s your proudest moment as a doctor?
To take a disastrous situation- a true emergency- and perform at a top level to treat the patient in an efficient and effective manner so as to benefit the patient maximally. It is truly satisfying

In your opinion, what’s the most important factor in a doctor-patient relationship?
Honesty and compassion are the most important elements to a successful doctor-patient relationship.

What do you find most encouraging about the work you do?
My specialty is overall a very happy specialty. Patient excitement about pregnancy is always very encouraging. But Robotic surgery has also been very encouraging in my career over the past decade. Realizing the benefit of performing a major surgery like a hysterectomy, using the robotic technique in the outpatient setting, and returning the patient to her family duties and work in 7-14 days has been very gratifying.

What are your top priorities with every patient you see?
My top priority has always been treating the patient in an honest, compassionate manner using excellent clinical skills so as to achieve optimal patient care.

Describe one of the top ways you ensure each patient receives the quality, personal health care he/she deserves.
Quality, personal health care is what every patient deserves. Knowing this and practicing this are the bedrock goals of my approach to patient care- for each and every patient.
