I am a board-certified vascular surgeon at Memorial Cardiac and Vascular Institute. I care for patients with carotid artery disease, peripheral vascular disease, dialysis access needs, abdominal aortic aneurysms, thoracic outlet syndrome, varicose veins and venous insufficiency and other vascular diseases and concerns.
I come from a family of physicians. My great-grandfather and grandfather were doctors and my father is a surgeon serving the South Florida community today. While I originally pursued a career in computer science, I was drawn to medicine after spending some time in a hospital when a friend was sick. I knew then that I wanted to become a surgeon, helping people to heal and live their life to their fullest potential.
I believe that the foundation to patient care should still be the relationship between doctors and their patients. I enjoy getting to know my patients and treating them over the long term. This way, I can address their immediate health challenges, and then continue to help them maintain their health and wellbeing.
In addition to patient care, I am also actively involved in teaching the next generation of vascular surgeons. I am a clinical assistant professor at Florida International University and look forward to teaching surgical residents at Memorial.
When I'm not working, I like to run, play guitar and spend time with my family.
