“My family taught me that helping people brings true happiness, and I believe the best way to help people is to keep them healthy. A strong and healthy body helps an individual overcome whatever obstacles he or she faces and reach their goals.
“After completing a comprehensive general surgery training that enabled me to perform procedures such as breast, hernia, abdominal surgery, and all other general surgery procedures, I had the privilege to train in Boston at Tufts Medical Center, where I focused on minimally invasive and bariatric surgery. My patients have great outcomes after weight loss surgery and their smiles are the most rewarding things I could ever have. I am excited to bring my expertise in bariatric/weight loss surgery to Anniston General Center and deliver excellent specialized care.
“In my spare time I exercise daily with a mix of cardio and strength training (which builds my energy and endurance for long workdays), and I also enjoy cooking and eating with my family.”
