What made you want to become a health care provider or what is your earliest memory of wanting to be one?
I admired the doctor when I was a child becasue I enjoy helping others, especially patients who need help most.
What do you love most about your specialty? / Why did you choose your specialty?
Pathology is the best combination of my research experience and my interest in clinical medicine. I chose pathology because pathology is still the gold standard of diagnosis in many cases, especially tumors in which the correct diagnosis often leads to best treatment and correct prognosis for the patient.

As a dermatopathologist, I try to communicate with the dermatologist regularly so I can help clinicians make the best treatment decisions for patients.
