I love using all the medical knowledge and skills imparted to me in delivering a compassionate care to the patients with organ failure (kidney, liver and pancreas). I am honored and blessed to work and take care of the people and the family donating "Gifts of Life" (whole or part) and who are the foundation of the field of transplantation, redefining the meaning of "LIFE" forever.
