General Info

About me

While finishing my specialty in Anesthesiology and Recovery, I was clear that analgesia techniques, which provide much benefits to surgical patients, should have a bigger role to benefit people with chronic pain conditions.
When faced with a family situation, in which one of my closest relatives couldn't find an answer or relief from a disease of difficult diagnosis, I knew I should further my knowledge of Pain Medicine.
After completing the subspecialty in Clinical Pain Therapy, I am prepared to assist patients with the knowledge of medicine and intervention techniques that are not found in other specialties.
