Why did you become a physician/provider?
Growing up, I always admired the dedication of my father as a physician caring for his patients, and the impact he had in their lives. I find the greatest satisfaction in helping my patients through their most difficult times and always aim to improve their quality of life.

What qualities best describe the care you provide to your patients?
I strongly believe in a personalized health approach to each of my patients. I always work closely with my patients to try and incorporate their goals and wishes as we work together to achieve a healthier life.

Being a healthcare provider, what drives/motivates you each day?
I feel extremely passionate about what I do and the impact I can possibly have on my patients’ lives.

What is the most important message you would like to share with your patients? What would you like your patients to know about you?
I always like to involve my patients in decisions affecting their care, and for that reason I spend some extra time educating them about their medical conditions and how we can control these together, whether that involves simply lifestyle modifications or medical therapy and interventions.

Are there any fun facts that you would like the community to know about you?
I was born and raised in the islands of Greece. I love traveling and spending time outdoors. When I am at home, I enjoy cooking with my family or just relaxing and playing with my dog.
