Philosophy of Care:

I strongly believe in practicing medicine based on scientific evidence as well as adequately informing my patients about  the risks and benefits of their therapeutic options. This enables the patients to make decisions based on their value systems and their understanding of scientific evidence. All my research is focused on improving patient care through clinical and policy research.
