Personal Statement

I left my home country in Lebanon to pursue advanced training in the US. My ultimate goal was to become a subspecialized physician who can provide the best quality of care for our population especially the undeserved. As an interventional radiologist, we can use advanced continuously evolving technology to perform minimally invasive surgeries for otherwise non surgical candidate providing hope to our patients. Besides, I am really happy that I moved to Lexington. Exploring the beautiful hiking trails has been a never ending journey!
