Personal Interests: 

I was born in Egypt and raised in Puerto Rico. I ventured away from the island and moved to cooler temperatures at Brown University in Rhode Island. I majored in Biology/Pre-Medicine, but when I was not working towards my medical school dreams, I did research on spider behavior in Maine. I moved to Atlanta to start Medical School at Emory University and I stayed with Emory for my Internal Medicine Residency. I engaged in Cardiology research throughout this time. I also have a specific interest in bedside ultrasound, which I believe can revolutionize bedside medicine for the next generation of physicians. The diverse patient population that I have worked with in Georgia has fueled my love for learning and practicing medicine. I have a passion for teaching and I believe that Piedmont Athens offers exceptional educators and talented researchers dedicated to the education and growth of our residents. I am thrilled to be joining the Piedmont Athens Internal Medicine family and continuing to learn and grow with the Residents. Outside of medicine I love cooking with my wife, traveling, jogging, and trying out new restaurants. Is that too many food-related activities? I look forward to meeting you all.
