I was initially intrigued with medicine as a career when I discovered the possibility that I could use investigative skills in order to help diagnose, treat, and help people. I was drawn to pediatric medicine because I love being able to play a role in preventing future disease by laying the groundwork early with parents and their children. I enjoy sharing the most updated guidelines and research with families, in addition to my own practical advice from being a mother myself.

    Time to wait for lab test is too long. Only one technician works while 10 patients are waiting. No room or space to sit while waiting for lab test.
