Where did you grow up?
I was born in Los Angeles and moved to Washington D.C. for Medical School
Why did you become a doctor and why did you choose your specialty?
During medical school, I became interested in surgery, with a particular fascination for reconstructive procedures. I remained at GW in the Department of Surgery and Urology as a resident. During my rotation at the Children’s National Health System as a Urology resident, I found myself particularly drawn to Pediatric Urology and , more specifically, to understanding best how to treat patients with urinary tract infections and vesicouretal reflux.
