    Personal Statement

    I see my patients at the UK Transplant Center in Lexington. We have a lung transplant clinic every day of the week.

    I chose to get into the field of medicine to help people and to alleviate suffering.

    My philosophy on patient care is to treat patients like I wish to be treated. I try to always be mindful that they are someone’s parent, child, sibling or grandparent first, and that they also happen to have a health-related issue.

    I love soccer, jogging and movies. I am also a history and geography fan.
