Patient Care Bio
I chose the field of hepatology/hepatic oncology because it is very near and dear to my heart. It allows me to think critically in all aspects of medicine as I deal with treating liver disease and liver cancer.
It is my belief that there is a human being and feeling behind every disease. This is why my patients can depend on me to be considerate and empathetic. I am also a human being first – and a caring person next.
Conditions I Treat:
- Hepatocellular/liver cancer
- Liver failure
- Chronic liver diseases
