How I knew I wanted to be a doctor

Wednesday, November 8, 2017

One of the most common questions I receive. How did I know I was making the right choice, in going to medical school? I grew up believing that I was going to be a doctor. I had nothing to base this off of, as no one I knew personally was in medicine. Call it a gut feeling, if you will, but something told me this was my calling.
