1. What led you into the world of medicine?

I have always excelled in math, human biology, and science in school. My continued interest in these fields naturally led me to the field of medicine.

 

2. What attributes do you have that make you a good fit for being a doctor – especially a cardiologist and electrophysiologist?

My attributes that make me a good fit for my career includes compassion, patience, perseverance, and determination. These traits are not only useful early on while going through the long and rigorous training required to be doctor, it is also helpful later on in your career as you deal with daily patient care issues.

 

3. Who or what inspires you?

I am inspired by the desire to make a difference in the world. Heart disease remains the number one killer of women in the United states. These terrible statistics about such a preventable disease inspires me to educated women and the world about heart disease in hopes that there are fewer deaths from heart disease in the future.

 

4. Describe your usual patient.

My usual patient is one with several chronic medical problems like hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, and also suffer from heart disease. A lot of times these patients do not understand that there is a connection between an unhealthy lifestyle and chronic medical problems. They also don’t know that they have the power to change their medical condition.

 

5. What is your pet peeve in regards to the medical industry?

It is disheartening how  expensive medical care can be. I wish we can one day come up with a way to make it more affordable for all.

 

6. What personal changes have you had to make in order to build your career?

have had to learn life-work balance. As a physician in a very busy practice, I find that my time is in demand and I neglect the important things in my life like my family, and sometimes myself. I know now that in order to avoid physician burnout I must create a healthy life-work balance.

 

7. What do you consider your biggest challenge?

My biggest challenge in patient care is convincing patients who have chronic medical problems and feel well at the moment to take medications to prevent a future catastrophic event.

8. If you could invite any three people (alive or passed on) for a dinner party who would they be?

Nelson Mandela, Oprah Winfrey and Barack Obama to have dinner with me. I love their wisdom and leadership styles

 

9. If you could switch careers for a day, what would you choose?

I would be an opera singer. I love to sing soprano aria’s. I’m not saying I sing well at all. But I just love to do it.

 

10. What is the most important tip you would pass on to another person just getting started as a doctor?

I would advise them that it is a long road and they should find time to take care of themselves.

Positive People for Peace and the Planet
