Why I decided to practice medicine?:
My initial goal was to enter a career which allowed me to somehow provide net value or benefit for the health of patients. This continues to be the primary goal with my practice today.

Favorite health tip:
My favorite health tip is actually a tip about navigating the health care system. Whenever a patient is seen for a health problem it is important to be clear about his or her goals of therapy.
Sometimes these can be implied and at other times the goals need to be deliberately discussed.
