“I’ve been interested in becoming a doctor ever since I was a very young boy–and my decision is confirmed every day when I arrive at the practice.  Having the ability to help children and families in need carries a heavy responsibility, but also brings with it a wonderful sense of fulfillment.  I approach everyone who comes to my office as if he or she is one of my own family members, and I will do everything that I can to help them.”
