Why I became a doctor/radiologist
I went to medical school because I wanted to help patients. In my 3rd and 4th year medical school clinical rotations, I came to realize that Diagnostic Radiology is a crucial part of modern medicine. A correct diagnosis is a critical step for the treatment that follows. Radiologists are among some of the most knowledgeable specialists, and are sometimes regarded “Doctor of doctors”. I, therefore, chose to become a radiologist, hoping to help more patients.
Special interests in medicine/radiology
Breast Imaging, Body MRI, CT, and ultrasound.
Besides practicing clinical radiology, I am also interested in radiology clinical research.
I enjoy cooking, gardening, traveling and reading stories with my boys.
