    General Surgery

  • About Me:

    Preparing for a surgery can be overwhelming to some patients, so it helps to offer reassurance with the many years of experience I bring and my caring nature. Before studying to become a doctor, I served as a nurse. This role offered great perspective and understanding of what is most essential in treating patients.

    I work with all ages and perform all types of surgical procedures, including those related to vascular and cancer conditions. It is an honor to provide such personalized care to people in their time of need.
