Infectious Disease, Internal Medicine

 I believe strongly hat when a patient truly understands his/her medical condition, we can optimize the treatment. I always encourage my patients to ask questions, bring family, and participate in their care, so that as a team, we can better manage their medical issues and get them on the path to wellness.
