Philosophy of Medicine

"I grew up in a highly underserved area in desperate need of medical expertise. I developed a strong attraction to medicine from my early school days. I pursued my dreams, which brought me here close to home. I would like my patients to think of me as someone in their corner in difficult times. I want to gain their full trust and comfort in knowing that I will care for them as I would want my loved ones cared for."
