“I was highly motivated when I decided to pursue a career in medicine. It is a rewarding to influence someone’s life and also an endless learning process. When I am with a patient, I always follow three basic rules of treatment – Safety, quality care and patient satisfaction. I believe in non-judgmental communication and strive to listen, listen and listen some more before exploring possible diagnoses.”
