Why are you proud to be a physician?
Being a physician was a childhood goal and I was always interested in medicine. My family and my friends have always supported and been willing to assist with the amount of sacrifice and time devoted to practice, leading to a combined pride in assisting with providing health care delivery to my community and friends. The art and science of medicine provides an affirmation, compassion, and empathy for my professional life.
Why are you proud to be a member of NAM & TMA?
NAM is one of the oldest and most prestigious Academies of Medicine in our country. Being involved with the professional organization that represents physicians and assists in providing care to indigent and to others in need through the Medical Foundation of Nashville is also very fulfilling.
