Ever since I can remember, I wanted to be a doctor and help people. As I started medical school and then starting to kind of decipher what I wanted to do, what specialty I wanted to go into, I realized I wanted to do surgery. Directly, in a concrete way, help people. Patient care is the most important thing to me. Really, when I meet a patient for the first time, the first important step is establishing trust and for them to know that I'm going to take the time to hear out their concerns, their symptoms and try to offer them a treatment plan and offer them the best care possible. And there's no greater reward than having a patient and family appreciate what you've done to make them better and make them whole again. Especially with some patients, it becomes a lifelong thing where we're establishing a trust that goes beyond just that patient. We're friend, family and things, where they have faith that I'm going to do best by them and give them the best care.
