Thank you for joining me on my adventures in medical school (and now residency)! Working in hospitals, I’ve seen humanity at its worst and at its best. I’ve been bled on, peed on, puked on. I’ve delivered babies, prevented suicides, even “cured” cancer. Through it all, I have learned how to tend to the suffering—with competence and confidence, but most of all with compassion.
My writing began with me telling a few inspirational stories of the brave and resilient patients I met as a medical student, but as my readers encouraged me to continually seek these valuable lessons, it has blossomed into a passion that has shaped my whole practice of medicine. Even though my work has kept me busy, I have continued writing to bring doctors closer to the society they serve.
