1. What is your specialty?
My specialty is Gastroenterology, which deals with the treatment of the digestive system.

2. Why did you want to become a Physician?
My initial interest in becoming a doctor was actually by watching M*A*S*H. The more I considered it, the more I love the idea of becoming a physician. You are constantly learning and being challenged. And you get to help people.

3. What is one aspect of the job that you find rewarding?
Arriving at the correct diagnosis and providing treatment for patients who have had long-standing symptoms is very satisfying.

4. In your opinion, what’s the future of your field?
I feel Gastroenterology, as well as medicine in general, will be more and more assisted by technology. Artificial intelligence is already beginning to play a significant role.

5. What do you do to achieve work/life balance?
I enjoy biking, hiking, walking, and playing chess. I am a sports fan and I am trying to become a better cook. Being with my two sons is most important.
