Every day I come to work with the same energy and excitement I had the first time I stepped into an operating room. I feel blessed that I have been given the skills to cure lung and other thoracic cancers, improve and extend peoples lives. Patients entrust me with their lives and I work as hard as I can to ensure their trust in me is warranted. Every day I am trying to learn new techniques and treatments to better the lives of my patients
