Why did you become a doctor and why did you choose your specialty?
I have always wanted to be a pediatrician and work with families to provide the best care possible to children. It’s truly an honor to be brought into the lives of my patients and their families. I love pediatric endocrinology as it involves a deep appreciation of complex physiology in order to treat various disorders of hormone excess or deficiency.
