The practice of medicine is an art, not a trade; a calling, not a business; a calling in which your heart will be exercised equally with your head,” said Sir William Osler. I became a physician to help others. I listen to my patients, pay attention to minute details, and treat them with immense respect, making sure I provide the best care possible. In addition to taking care of complex and chronic diseases, I focus on educating patients, providing them with the tools they need to prevent the disease in the first place. Educating my patients, following evidence-based guidelines, and teamwork are the key factors that can win over disease ailments.
