About

Biography

I’m a hospitalist in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), specializing in newborn care and management of late preterm infants.

I was inspired to become a physician by my three older siblings, who are also physicians. I pursued pediatrics because I find children to be happy and upbeat, even when they’re sick.

My care philosophy is simple: know your patients well, don't waste people’s time and get it right the first time. I serve my patients to the best of my abilities and optimize care for each of them with evidence-based standards tailored to their unique situations. I also steer patients and families away from unwarranted interventions and expenses.

Although I like to keep a low profile and shine in serving patients, I did receive a Cincinnati Top Doctor award in 2020.

In my free time, I like to pursue music, mentor kids at Sunday school and spend time with my family.
