“My parents laid a firm foundation for my career in medicine. I chose Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery as a career because of my passion for the intricate and delicate anatomy of the head and neck. Ensuring the patient’s wholeness by preserving functionality, aesthetic beauty, self-identity and unique voice is of quintessential importance to me.”
