General Info

About me

I am a big admirer of science because it is information based on evidence. I have an interest in helping people with their health problems and providing them with satisfaction and happiness. I continually pursue my studies and medicate my patients only when necessary. Since I am a fanatic of technology, I love the fact that I have the opportunity to work with high-tech equipment. But what I like the most about being a Gastroenterologist is being able to help sick people feel better.
