General Info

About me

Since I was in elementary school I felt the calling to become a doctor. The science programs were always my favorite shows to watch; plus helping people improve their lives really inspires me. I am passionate about diagnosing illnesses using minimal invasive procedures while to prevent the use of invasive care in the cases where it is not necessary.
