"I highly recommend this doctor to all medical students wishing to pursue a career in OB/GYN. Honestly, he is one of the best doctors I have ever rotate with. Not only is he an outstanding, knowledgeable doctor but he is also a great mentor and teacher who gives the best life and career advices. He will always be available for your questions and will provide resources so that you keep up to date with the patients. He is also very kind and caring towards patients. The staff is very welcoming too and they help you throughout the entire rotation. I cannot be grateful enough for the four weeks that I have spent with him, everything that I learnt regarding OB/GYN but most importantly how caring the doctor was towards me during the whole internship."
