Personal Statement

I feel privileged to have become a pediatric gastroenterology and hepatology physician as it has given me the opportunity to combine my passion for both fields. I believe that creating a supportive and educational environment for patients and their parents are the cornerstones in developing long-lasting relationships. My goal is to improve the health and overall well-being of children living with acute and chronic gastrointestinal or liver conditions.
