My Areas of Practice

I have always been fascinated with physiology even as a medical student.   The physiologic mechanisms governing hormone production, action, and regulation are truly fascinating and quite logical - something that attracted me to this field of specialization.  I am particularly interested in diabetes and its diverse manifestations in different ethnicities and patient populations.  I am also interested in thyroid disorders, obesity, pituitary and adrenal disorders, as well as secondary hypertension. 

I enjoy patient interaction.  In my practice, I endeavor to treat patients as partners in their own healthcare.  I believe that helping patients understand their disease process, setting goals and objectives, and involving patients and their families in their own care help tremendously in the treatment of chronic illnesses such as diabetes, obesity, overweight, and hyperlipidemia.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, learning to play guitar and going to the gym to keep healthy.  Traveling to different countries and exploring their local cuisines is also something I would like to do more of in the near future.
