When I was in high school, I attended a lecture at a local college in which an oncologist spoke about finding a cure for cancer. I remember thinking I wanted to pursue a career that allowed me to make a difference. From that day on, there was no doubt in my mind that I would become a doctor.

During my internal medicine residency, a hepatologist advised me to choose a specialty that would allow me to become an expert. I decided to pursue hepatology, and I quickly realized I had made the right choice. Patients with liver disease can be very ill, and it is gratifying to be able to help save their lives.

I care for patients who have viral hepatitis, fatty liver disease, liver cancer, and autoimmune hepatitis. I prescribe antiviral medications to manage hepatitis B and immunosuppressive drugs for autoimmune hepatitis. In addition, I screen patients with cirrhosis for liver cancer and play a central role in caring for them.

I also manage complications of high blood pressure in the portal vein, which carries blood to the liver. These include ascites, when fluid builds up in the abdomen; varices, which are enlarged veins; and hepatic encephalopathy, in which liver damage leads to confusion and fatigue.

When a patient needs a liver transplant, I care for them before and after their surgery. I also help them avoid complications. Our liver transplant team includes hepatologists, surgeons, infectious disease specialists, social workers, nutritionists, and transplant coordinators. We spend time with patients and get to know them, so we can deliver the most personalized care.

My goal is to develop a partnership with patients. I want to help them understand their condition. I draw pictures and explain why their condition is causing symptoms. I also describe how their treatment plan will help them.

It is rewarding to know that patients count on me to help them feel better. I love being there for people in their time of need.
