More about me
I became a neurologist because I wanted to help people cope better with their health challenges. Both of my parents were doctors, so I grew up in an environment focused on helping people deal with illnesses.
My patients can expect me to do my best to address their concerns. I want them to know I will be there for them in the long term if they have a chronic neurological illness, and I will use all resources available to me to make their lives better.
I enjoy classical music, spending time with family and friends, travelling, swimming, painting, studying history and woodworking.
I exercise regularly and eat a Mediterranean diet.
Responsible, caring, even-tempered, helpful.
I wanted to be a doctor.
“If your shoes have holes in them, there are people with no shoes who can use your help.” This quote is from my grandmother, passed to me by my mother.
