A lifelong love of science and biology led me to my first career in Bacteriology and Molecular Biology, in which I studied the tiniest of organisms. Over time, I became intrigued by the idea of learning about people, the most complex of all living things. In medical school, I was introduced to Psychiatry and discovered the profession I had been searching for all along. As a psychiatrist, I use my understanding of medicine as I evaluate the interactions of physical illness and psychological symptoms. I use my scientific expertise to design rational medication treatment regimens and monitor for drug interactions. But I use my heart and soul as well as my mind, when I am with my patients.
It is a great privilege to have people share their innermost thoughts, dreams, hopes and fears with me. I learn something from my patients every day and I am honored to be part of their lives.
