What do you want your legacy to be?
To be remembered as an ethical, courteous and humble physician who helped advance the quality and diversify the scope of healthcare in the Las Vegas community for locals and tourists alike.
What is your pet peeve?
My biggest pet peeve is when someone lacks the initiative to better themselves, their families, their communities and the world around them. We all have to play our part.
What is the best moment of your career?
Every day I’m able to help someone is truly the best moment of my career. When a patient expresses their gratitude for helping them feel better, those are the most rewarding experiences I could ask for.
What business advice would you give someone just starting in your industry?
Stay true to your values, whether in the medical field or otherwise. Humility, hospitality, respect, integrity and accountability are a must. If heading into the medical field, remember that the patient is the center of the heathcare world and should always be put first.
If you could be any fictional character, who would you be and why?
Odysseus from “The Odyssey” so that I could travel the world and experience all it has to offer.
What do you wish you would have learned at the beginning of your career?
Minimize negativity in your life and focus on the people around you that bring in positivity.
When you were a kid, what did you want to be?
As a kid, I wanted to become an automotive designer and engineer.
If you could have coined a single phrase of wisdom, what would it be?
As Aristotle once said, “pan metron ariston” which can be roughly translated as “all good things in moderation.” Doctor’s orders.
What is your motto?
Remain positive and optimistic in any circumstance and you will overcome.
What is your favorite thing about living in Nevada?
My father worked at Caesars Palace so, as kids, we grew up watching famous musicians and performers in the showroom. Growing up here, my family and I were given such unique experiences we wouldn’t have been exposed to anywhere else in the world.
