  • "Growing up, I was greatly influenced by my family physician, who became a life-long role model for me. He was very compassionate, very kind and totally dedicated to taking care of people. The relationship he had with his patients and how people treated him was always amazing to me. By the age of six, I knew I wanted to be a physician...just like him."
