General Info

About me

To become a doctor was a goal of life, with this profession I can be close to people, understand their pain, their difficulties and problems. It is a very professional way of serving others.
I really enjoy my work, I try to be innovating, so in addition to providing direct care to patients I also participated in teaching in the training of new doctors, give speeches of various rheumatic diseases and also have a research center called CAIRA. This way I can keep an interesting balance between care and research, which allows me to be updated.
