“I grew up in a family of healthcare professionals. My father was a physician, and my mother was a physician’s assistant. Some of my earliest memories were spent in their clinic. Even at a young age, it was easy to appreciate their incredible relationships with their patients and how much of an impact they made on the lives of others. That was something I aspired to do as well. Now,
as a physician myself, nothing is more gratifying than performing a procedure and having my patient return home the same day feeling better.”
