Why did you go into trauma/acute care surgery?
Being enamored with surgery since my medical school years and enjoying helping patients get better fast in the Operating Room or the Intensive Care Unit, I could not think of a better or more fulfilling profession than that of an Acute Care Surgeon. 

What makes Boston Medical Center special?
I could say its location in one of the country’s most beautiful and vibrant cities. Or its affiliation with one of the nation’s best medical schools. Or that it is home to New England’s busiest Emergency Department and most experienced Trauma Center. Or the numerous recognition awards it’s received for the highest quality of care it provides to all its patients. But none of these would matter, if it wasn’t for the best, most qualified, and compassionate healthcare professionals that call Boston Medical Center their home.
