Personal Statement

There is nothing that brings me greater joy than seeing a patient with end-stage organ failure be given a second chance at life. My goal is to provide the highest level of care to all of my patients while also offering warmth and compassion to them and their families. I am also dedicated to advancing the field through clinical and epidemiological research so that we can achieve better outcomes for a greater number of people.
