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 primary care provider dedicated to forming a bond with my patients that will lead them to optimize their health. I enjoy learning about my individual patients social and cultural background and this allows me to understand and individually tailor treatment plans. I have a focus on lifestyle medicine and as an obesity medicine doctor like to focus on healthy ways in which we can interact with our environment and become the healthier version of ourselves.
How I stay healthy and happy
I love learning about different cultures and the way we see the world around us. The integral part culture, values and beliefs play in fueling and promoting health fascinates me. I enjoy forming social connections and activities that allow me to interact with others; such as traveling, sharing a meal, cooking, dancing, etc. As I embark on my own journey towards optimal health, helping others around me achieve their optimal health and self growth is a top priority.
