Personal Statement

“My family owned and operated a family clinic in Chicago, Illinois.  I started working there at about age 5!  It was there that I got my first exposure to medicine and surgery with my father.  I remember going on house calls, and making rounds with my father at a very young age.  I first “scrubbed” in the operating room with my father at age 15.

It was through these early experiences that I have described learning to be a physician and surgeon as an “apprentice”.  I strive to carry on the old medical values of caring and compassion, blended with the latest in technological advancements.”


Surgeons' Mission Statement

We care for every patient as we would care for ourselves and our family members.
