“Medicine is truly my passion. It drove me to dedicate years to study. I was reminded of it during those long days and nights in training and residency. I see it in the faces of my patients every day. I take pride in taking care of all my patients as I would my own family members. From the years that I dedicated to serving our nation’s veterans, to taking care of my patients in Baltimore and Washington DC, I have been blessed with a profession that fulfills my soul.”
