My Experience:
"In Medical School there are many fields and specialties to explore. However, when you learn about what general Surgery really entails, that's what made me so passionate about this specialty​

'Providing surgical care for the whole patient. The medical community has become more fragmented in many ways, and to know I am in a specialty that looks at the whole body is deeply gratifying."

The future of medicine will exist in a more all encompassing wholistic approach because this is the way the human body functions. The approach of our care has to match the framework of our bodies. This is true healing."
