What made you want to become a health care provider or what is your earliest memory of wanting to be one?
Every one of us contributes to mankind one way or the other, I always believed and wanted to contribute to mankind in a direct fashion, and the best way to do that was through patient care. The first I thought of becoming a doctor was when I was in the hospital visiting my grandfather.
