Why did you decide to become a physician?
I chose the field of anesthesiology because it allows me to have an immediate and lasting impact on patient’s lives. Running a pre-operative clinic allows me to ensure that patient’s have a smooth peri-operative course and lays the groundwork for the best possible outcome after surgery.
