Hometown: The island of St. Vincent and the Grenadines
Best part of my work: Making a personal connection with my patients and listening to and understanding their medical condition to improve short and long-term well-being.
Why I became a provider: It has been my passion since childhood to help sick people in a very tangible way. I love the satisfaction of being able to diagnose and treat my patients.
How I spend my free time: Cooking new foods, running, reading, watching sports, exercising, spending time with my family and traveling.
What patients say about me: That I spend quality time listening and have very good patient follow-up.
Favorite health tip: It is important to keep moving and even the littlest things help such as taking the stairs rather than the elevator.
Practice philosophy: To find happiness, fulfillment, and value in my profession, I try to find the best way to not only reduce pain and suffering of my patients, but most importantly strive to treat the underlying cause of their medical condition. I firmly believe that restoring and improving their quality of life is true measure of success.
