Story of The Chief Medical Director

I decided to become a doctor at the age of twelve. Besides the nobility of the profession, what turned my mind to medical science was my own experience during a childhood illness. I had to queue up for seven long hours before I could see the doctor. That long wait made me think and feel for the helpless patients, I wanted to care for them and serve mankind. It became my life’s ambition to become a doctor. I have never looked back on my decision. My life is one of fulfillment and satisfaction especially being a Professor of Internal Medicine & Neurology. I experience great satisfaction every time a patient of mine improves in health.
