I love OB/GYN: When I was a medical student, OB/GYN was the speciality that I feel in love with. I love working with women at the various different stages of their lives- from menarche to pregnancy to menopause. Its a speciality where you get the opportunity to have an amazing relationship with your patients because you get to experience some of the most intimate and important times in their lives.
