About me

Initially, I studied medicine because I was curious about how the human body worked. Furthermore, I studied Gastroenterology and Endoscopy because when combined, one is empowered with great tools to diagnosis and treat the illnesses of digestive system. What I like the most about my job professionally is removing malignant lesions in order to prevent cancer but on a personal level I love the interaction I have with my patients.
