"People always ask why I went into emergency medicine. Quite simply it's a passion. Being an ER doc, I get to deal with all the elements of medicine which I am most connected with. The life and death situations, the trauma, the toxicology and the critically ill treatment are all exciting and very interesting aspects of medicine. At the same time I love the fundamental elements of being a clinician. Taking time to explain illnesses and go that extra mile to connect with patients, some at their worst moments, has always been the credo of my practice. With over 20 years of clinical experience, I want to bring my expertise and my passion for emergency medicine to a more personalized niche setting. Hence, a new chapter in my medical career has unfolded in creating Oakwood."
