I find the understanding of how the body system works intriguing, and medicine helps me put my interest to work. I chose Internal Medicine because it provides a strong knowledge base of the human body and how to keep this whole system running well. I’ve witnessed how ailments affect a person and his/her family, and the experience humbles me as a physician and further solidifies my desire to be an advocate for my patients.
