In his own words
"What gives me most pleasure in my job is making my patients feel special and that someone cares about them. So many people are scared and afraid to see a doctor, it's so important to make every patient feel comfortable in the office, especially for surgery.
"The advice I give patients most often is, 'Please trust me. I am totally honest with my patients and I will let you know when to worry.'
"I've known I wanted to be a doctor since elementary school, where I enjoyed learning and being social. Also, my mother is a social worker, and I always learned the importance of helping other people. I used to joke in school that 'these are the hands of a surgeon,' and 20 years later it became true."
