Why did you want to become a doctor?

Fascination with the human body. I wanted to help improve people’s lives.

What sets you apart from other doctors in your field?

I have a surgical background and I am more of an interventionalist. I don't use to many opioids in my practice. I also trained at heavily academic institutions with a large spectrum of patients. I'm able to provide patients with treatment options other pain physicians may not be familiar or comfortable with.
