General Info

About me

I decided to become a doctor in the interest of helping people. My father is also a proctologist and I always knew that I could make a difference in the quality of life of my patients, especially considering there are only a few practicing proctologists. I enjoy seeing the positive difference in the life of my patients after undergoing treatment.
