I find gastroenterology very exciting, as it gives me the opportunity to help patients in many different ways, either in clinic or doing endoscopic procedures. I also enjoy taking care of patients with liver disease. I believe in always doing what is best for the patient, and always putting myself in the patient’s shoes.
