“I started my medical career as an anesthesiologist. However, I realized that I could be more involved in patient care by specializing in pain management. I liked the one on one attention of an awake patient. I wanted to help patients on a personal level. This brings me a lot of gratification. I enjoy watching the progression of patients improving over time. I take my time, listen to the patients’ issues and get involved in their care. I genuinely want to improve their lives. I hope to give them peace of mind and a better quality of life.”
