The practice of medicine offers the perfect combination of learning and service. There is always something to learn while having the privilege of serving others, and I feel that is the road to happiness. I chose pediatrics because I believe children are the purest and most genuine human beings, and I love having the opportunity to help them even in their most vulnerable moments. I also believe in having the patient and family be an integral part of the decision-making process.
