About me

I studied medicine, because since I was a child I saw my father work as a surgeon and I was in direct contact with health services throughout my life because of him.
The decision to become a doctor relied primarily on my desire to help people.
I leaned towards general surgery because it is the manual part of medicine. It also allows me to be in direct contact with the patient's pathology, besides being a practical area of immediate result
