Why did you want to become a doctor?

Extremely motivated by my 10th-grade biology teacher.

What sets you apart from other doctors in your field?

Double-board certification in both Plastic Surgery and Otolaryngology. I intently listen to my patients and deliver natural-looking results. Patients feel comfortable with my bedside manner and trust that they will be taken care of with their interests always coming first.

What are your 5 tips for living longer?

  1. Surround yourself with positive energy: people, your mind and your soul.
  2. Maintain healthy sleep patterns, which are reparative to your mind and body.
  3. Let loose and live it up in moderation. What’s life without fun?
  4. Yearly checkups with your doctor. Nip it in the bud early. Taking care of small problems rather than big problems makes a lot of sense.
  5. You are what you eat. For example, juicing, vitamins and antioxidants.
