When I was working as a research physicist helping to develop material for 3M’s cochlear implant device, I came in contact with many neurotologists and ENT surgeons. One day, I met a world-renowned surgeon named Dr. Howard House. He told me I should be an ENT. The idea of fixing broken “noses” “ears” and “throats” appealed to me. The rest is history.
Now, as an ENT physician, being able to help my patients through the diagnosis process and finding a treatment that brings them relief is very rewarding.
A valuable motto, both professionally and personally, “Be patient, listen.”
My favorite way to spend a day off includes a long bicycle ride for both relaxation and exercise. Afterward, an evening BBQ with family and friends.
