In His Own Words:
What motivated you to become a physician?
My decision to become a physician was deeply influenced by my faith and a desire to serve others as an outflow of that faith.
What is it about your practice that you find especially rewarding?
My family and I served for six years at Soddo Christian Hospital in Ethiopia with the Pan-African Academy of Christian Surgeons. During my family’s time serving in Ethiopia, I had the privilege of training and disciplining general surgery residents. Surgery has been especially rewarding in its ability to impact people for good at very difficult times of their lives.
My favorite place to travel to is…
Either the mountains or the beach.
