WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I believe that an informed patient makes the best health care decisions with physician guidance. Kidney transplantation, while life-saving, can be an overwhelming event for our kidney transplant recipients, and for their care-takers after transplantation. Therefore, I think it is critical that we transplant physicians make it a priority to thoroughly and clearly communicate with our patients about all aspects of transplantation and to do our best to explain the complex medical considerations frequently underlying our decisions on what to do for our transplant recipients. I chose to pursue transplant medicine as a career because I see how receiving an organ transplantation can be such a life-changing event for our patients, and at the same time how much more can still be done to make this therapy more streamlined and less complicated for our patients in need.
