TESTIMONIALS

"In the month I spent rotating with the doctor, not only was it an amazing learning opportunity but it was also a genuinely enjoyable time spent in the Houston Medical Center. He really goes out of his way to make sure that you feel comfortable in your new setting by personally explaining how things work and always being available to answer any questions. The doctor is one of the most patient teachers I've ever come across. His caring personality and extreme patience when teaching makes this a great option for aspiring physicians at any point in their journey."
