I had two uncles who were doctors and great role models. Since childhood, I wanted to be like them and become a doctor. I am fascinated by the function and intricacy of the design of the human body. I also appreciate the individuality of each being as a separate and unique person with special attributes, and consider each patient unique. I am privileged to see each encounter with my patients as an opportunity to make a difference and see a vignette of a life. I am most grateful for that.
