Personal Statement

“Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.” – A.A. Milne (Winnie the Pooh)

 “In automobile terms, the child supplies the power but the parents have to do the steering.” – Benjamin Spock

My first inspiration and desire to be a physician, stems from my father, who was an internist, in Transylvania, Romania, where I was born. He loved his profession, and always said, that true caring for your patients and good communication with them, were the most gratifying to his everyday life. I was 5 years old, when I decided to follow in his footsteps, and as I grew older, my wish turned into a fervent passion, and a lifelong pursuit. I chose pediatrics, because it combined the best – taking care of little children, watching them grow and develop, interact with them at all ages and stages, while at the same time “steering” the parents.

Teaching, guiding and listening to parental concerns is something I truly enjoy. I have learned so much from children and parents that I then can pass on, like the links of a chain.
