Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine: The reason I chose to pursue medicine is not as important as the reason I continue to practice. I continue to practice medicine because it is one of the few professions that allow for an immediate relationship when people are at their most vulnerable, and I look forward to giving whatever comfort or peace I can minister.
What patients should expect when they come to an appointment with me: I hope that they leave knowing that I was listening to them.
What I do when I’m not seeing patients: I like to spend time with my family, and enjoy the outdoors. And whenever possible, I try to pray often.
