Dr. Amar says...

Dr. Amar began her medical career doing research for a pathologist. A biochemistry and chemistry major in college, she considered becoming a pediatrician before she discovered podiatry and decided to become a foot doctor. NYC seemed the logical place to study and start her practice.

Shazia Amar was motivated to become a foot doctor in NYC when her grandmother visited became ill and was taken to the hospital. Her grandmother didn't speak any English, and was understandably anxious about being sick so far from home. Dr. Amar was struck by the physician's warmth and compassion, and his ability to quickly alleviate her grandmother's concerns, despite the fact that they didn't speak the same language.
