Personal Statement



As a member of the Weill Cornell Medical College I provide comprehensive and compassionate care to a diverse population of patients for a wide variety of gastrointestinal and liver conditions. I have trained at a number of excellent academic medical institutions across the United States, and while working alongside some of the most skilled physicians in the country I have built a clinical and endoscopic skillset that allows me to deliver exceptional patient-centered care. I have a particular passion for research into metabolic liver diseases (NAFLD) and the gut microbiome, and I find it extremely rewarding to bring my academic and research expertise into the clinic to help care for patients.
