My goal is to treat each patient with wisdom and compassion. I try to approach each patient with gentleness and care, backed by the most up-to-date knowledge about their disease. In difficult cases where we cannot necessarily offer a cure, we can still offer understanding and compassion, which are very important to the healing process. In addition to treating the symptoms of my patients, I attempt to go deeper and identify the root cause of their illness.

In my spare time, I meditate daily and have a deep interest in the Dharma. I also enjoy nature and the outdoors.
