1. How did you get into medicine?
I was close to five years old, and I remembered my grandmother complaining to me about something hurting her. I told her one day I would grow up to be a doctor so that I could help her. I think of her and the promise I made when I see my patients.
2. Who has influenced you the most in your personal life and career?
