Doctor of Medicine, a common medical school degree for physicians. MDs at One Medical typically specialize in family medicine, internal medicine, geriatrics or pediatrics.
I am a compassionate primary care family medicine doctor specializing in geriatric medicine. I strive to develop a meaningful and strong connection with my patients. I aim to educate and empower my patients to help them make well-informed decisions about their own health, with a great emphasis on preventive care. I see my patients as partners, and I share with them likely evidence-based outcomes of different approaches to proposed treatments. Additionally, I am a strong advocate for my patients and I work diligently in the coordination of their care with specialists, pharmacies, specialty clinics, and hospitals according to each patient’s needs, in order to decrease any potential gaps in a holistic approach. During my geriatrics training at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, I was given the STAR employee award for compassionate care, which is a source of great joy for me, and also corroborates my patients’s online reviews.
How I stay healthy and happy
Adhering to a moral behavior and understanding the positive impact it produces on others makes me truly happy. I believe that socialization is a key component for anyone to keep a good physical, mental, and spiritual fitness.
