What inspired you to choose medicine? I have a keen interest in understanding the human body and various disease processes and then ultimately to have the opportunity to help patients with this knowledge.
Why did you choose your specialty? Pulmonary physiology intrigued me. Also, I had the chance to practice pulmonary medicine in many diverse settings such as in an intense critical care setting, an outpatient setting, treating patients with chronic lung and sleep disease.
What is your philosophy of care? I believe in making a difference is the quality of life for my patients by providing evidence-based, compassionate care.
