I am an infectious disease specialist at Memorial Healthcare System. I care for patients with conditions including HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, as well as transplant patients, who are more prone to infections due to their compromised immune systems.
I have wanted to be a physician since I was in the sixth grade, when I became fascinated with how the body works. I have also always admired how doctors serve as a strong support to patients and their families during a difficult time.
I love working in internal medicine and infectious disease because you need to know about all of the systems of the body, how they work together and how one may affect another. You must also be familiar with different cultures and know what diseases are more prevalent in different areas around the world.
During my training, I became intrigued and enamored in how the transplantation of organs or stem cells can cause a big difference in a patient’s health and quality of life. When working with transplant patients, I take into consideration everything in their life (their hobbies, environment, trips, close contacts, medications, etc.) in order to make a prompt and correct diagnosis.
At Memorial, I collaborate with a variety of physicians to understand the health and background of my patients to offer them the best care possible in South Florida.
