"It is the greatest responsibility to have the entire life of a patient lying on a bed in a surgery room; it truly symbolizes a great act of trust that the patient has toward the surgeon. As a surgeon you owe each patient your best attention every time you enter a surgery."

General Info

About me

Ever since I could remember, I wanted to be a surgeon. For me, it was the way I could help a person in need or who is suffering with a serious condition. What I love about my job is when I have the opportunity to help someone who has low economic means and change their life; that truly provides a great satisfaction to me.
