My care philosophy is largely based on my upbringing and personal events that shaped me to be a doctor.

On my first day of cardiology training, while learning how to perform echocardiograms, i found out that I was walking around with a hole in my heart, called an atrial septal defect, that needed to be closed or i would develop heart failure or arrhythmias.
