What made you want to become a health care provider or what is your earliest memory of wanting to be one?
I became a neurologist because I really enjoy taking care of people. My earliest memory of wanting to become a doctor was when I was six years old after spending time with my uncle, a family doctor, who had been taking care of my family.
What do you love most about your specialty? / Why did you choose your specialty?
Neurological diseases are very challenging and devastating. I find it very rewarding to treat patients with brain and nervous system disorders.

I connect with patients through compassion, sympathy, care, and by being a good listener.

Love yourself, and keep a healthy lifestyle.
