“While I have a mother, father and brother in the medical field, working as an interpreter in a charity clinic and seeing the human side of medicine is what truly drew me to become a physician. I enjoy helping patients make sense of what is often a misunderstood disease, and hopefully offer a better quality of life to patients, especially those suffering from eye cancer.”
