My Biography

In addition to my professional experience in general nephrology and dialysis I have keen interests and experiences in the management of kidney transplant patients, dialysis access procedures and hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). On a personal note, I enjoy practicing medicine and I love caring for my patients, while concurrently striving to learn and continuously acquire new knowledge and medical skills. I believe that honesty, compassionate care, knowing your limitations as a physician, and actively involving patients in their medical care are great values and virtues that every physician should provide to their patients.
