Every day, I learn a lot from my amazing job. When I decided to be a physician, I decided to step it up to do the hardest job, as a heart and lung surgeon. My job, has me working in the area between the good life and death and that makes me more humble, respectful, and thankful. For me as a surgeon, nothing is better than seeing a smile on one of my patients; it makes me realize I am doing my best to give them the best care possible. Working with a group of a surgeons like ours is a gift and working in the field of heart and lung transplantation takes teamwork to the highest level. As a person, I want to be a good husband, father, and friend and to keep facing challenges with a big smile.
