General Info

About me

Those of us who decided to become doctors understand that we have a duty to our community, to the human and professional values of medicine.

While I was studying to be a doctor I slowly began grasping the importance of our vocation. I don’t consider my profession a job, but a way of life. I believe a doctor is made little by little. You are not a doctor only in the consultation, we have a duty to help people wherever and whenever our attention is required. This initiative must come from within and not be forced to help just by having a title.
