About

Bio

Throughout the developmental stages of life, I have come to realize that I will traverse many a crossroad. At all of these junctures, I foresee pain and suffering as always being an inseparable part of the world we live in. The misfortune of the underprivileged has always moved me to do something plausible to ameliorate their situation. This spirit of service to mankind is embedded in to the heart of my commitment to medicine. Finding a path of service to my fellow human beings was not only an idea in my mind, it was a passion in my heart, and for me, the most direct path towards that goal was to become a physician.”
