Manage Your Health Care Online



When I was a young teen, I went on rounds and observed my brother-in-law practicing medicine and decided to follow his path. I involve my patients in their health care, helping them understand their illnesses and guiding them to make well-informed medical decisions.

At Sharp, everyone truly loves their work. My colleagues and I provide a top-notch team approach to patient care, delivering medical care with attention to our patients' comfort.

Outside of work, I enjoy swimming, playing tennis and an occasional round of golf. I follow many sports, including football, golf, tennis, cycling, soccer, rugby, baseball, cricket and basketball. I also enjoy spending time with my wife and two teenage daughters.
