General Info

About me

When I attended medical school I realized that there weren’t many active Geriatricians nor many people willing to specialize in Geriatrics and Gerontology. It was then where I found a niche in which I felt I could really make a difference by helping vulnerable patients. Being able to help the elderly by offering relief, support, and advice brings me great satisfaction.
