Patients’ appreciation and satisfaction. Offering help and support to patients during their most vulnerable time is what I enjoy doing every day. The tireless effort and collaboration between several teams, patient and family with all working hard to make the graft survive is very rewarding. The frequent follow up visits and the strong relation we build with our patients is the most valuable aspect. We become one big family.
Like many international medical grads (IMGs), I had a long journey with Medicine and specially Nephrology. My education/training included 7 years of medical school, 3 years of internal medicine residency, 2 years of nephrology fellowship back home. In addition to 3 years of research fellowship in the field of transplantation, 1 year of kidney transplant fellowship, another 2 years of residency and 2 more years of nephrology fellowship in USA. Total of many years of joy and dedicated learning. I also enjoy fishing and 2000 pcs puzzle. Patience is my virtue!
