More Info

My career choice was heavily influenced by my father, but even so, I cannot imagine myself being anything but a surgeon. I believe that when treating a disease, no matter how serious, a doctor and patient form a close relationship built on mutual trust and understanding of the challenges that may lie ahead. I am convinced that an understanding of the treatment plan is crucial to making an appropriate decision by both the physician and patient.
