Biography

I believe that it is a privilege to serve patients as a dermatologist, and it is a privilege I treasure highly. I became a physician because I sincerely wanted to help people. I wanted to spend my time trying my best to alleviate pain and suffering, hoping to improve the quality of life of those for whom I have the privilege of caring. I believe that taking care of patients is not only skin deep, but also includes caring for their entire physical and mental well-being. I believe in an integrated system of collaboration, working closely with other medical providers to deliver the best care possible.

Outside of work, some of my favorite things include spending time with family and friends, listening to music, playing the piano, being outdoors and doing arts and crafts.
