Overview

Welcome to My Home Page! I chose medicine as a career to make a difference in the health and well being of people. I also enjoy the personal challenge of being knowledgeable about the human body. I like the opportunity and confidence patients place upon their doctor to make a difference in their health. I also enjoy the interaction with my patients and their families. My philosophy of care is to help my patients make an educated decision by informing them of the risks and benefits involved when considering therapy or treatment in medicine. I have a particular clinical interest in inflammatory bowel disease and received special training in gastroenterology. In addition to English, I also speak Amharic (Ethiopian language). In my free time I enjoy playing musical instruments like the guitar and piano.
