“I believe that compassion is what heals people because from compassion comes attentiveness, understanding, and respect. For me, good patient care begins in the doctor’s heart.”

Get to know Me

“I have healed with compassion as a primary care physician in Wisconsin, continuing onto Florida to practice Hospital Medicine at South Florida Baptist Hospital, Bartow Regional Medical Center, Brandon Regional Hospital, Florida Hospital Zephyrhills, and Helen Ellis Memorial Hospital.

I earned my MD degree at Khyber Medical College, Peshawar, Pakistan, and completed my residency in Internal Medicine at Newton-Wellesley Hospital in Massachusetts.

I have been married for 10 years and have a daughter and a son.  When I’m not healing patients, I’m mountain biking, ice skating, spending time with family, and traveling to new places.

I have volunteered with the Patient Care Society for underprivileged people.

It would be my privilege to heal you with compassion.”

Words I Live By
