“When I was growing up, I was particularly close to my Grandfather who, unfortunately, later on, suffered from Alzheimer’s disease. He was misdiagnosed for many years, making it often difficult for his loved ones to show consistent compassion. Later, understanding the process helped me to provide him with the deserved care he needed which ultimately lead me to a specialty in Geriatric Psychiatry. I am so thrilled to have the ability to work with elderly patients in rural areas that don’t necessarily have direct access to psychiatric care. “
