"I became a physician in order to make a meaningful contribution to society. It is my desire to make a significant impact on my patients, as well as their families. My goal is to meet not only the physical needs of my patients but their spiritual and emotional needs as well. The community of Walton County is paramount to me. I was welcomed with open arms into such a tight knit community, and my patients have become like an extended family to me. By practicing medicine here, I wish to impact the community with my multicultural experience.
