About himself:
“I live my life on my own coordinates, where time is measured in the frequency of major achievements, I always pick the fruits of my work as I move on towards a new goal. One may say I succeeded in my own country once I became Board Certified General Surgeon of European Union. It hasn’t proved to be enough once the guilt of self-sufficiency flooded my conscience, so here I am today in United States of America Board Certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist. I live for challenges but alive I am only through my patients, whose lives I’ve changed or saved.”
