We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
No successful career is without trials and tribulations. Any roadblock can be overcome to achieve one’s goals. In medical school and residency, the hours were horrendous. However, this trained me very well and would not have done it any other way. As a practitioner, there is the constant battle with insurers, economic downturns, and marketing. Also, a considerable amount of work is needed to keep more than current. Figuring the medical system in foreign countries was challenging but yields amazing opportunities in both medicine and business.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
I feel that I am at the top of my game. Through hard work, we offer cutting-edge services and procedures. We are best known for figuring out difficult problems and have a very good artistic eye. People come to me for Facial Plastic surgery and Reconstruction. Really good at revision rhinoplasties and facial rejuvenation surgery. Also, I consult with various businesses regarding the development of medically related enterprises.

Best quality- thinking big and outside the box

What were you like growing up?
As a kid, I was always interested in Science. Also, loved humor and people. Love most sports and started working out in high school and continue to this day.
