Hometown: Cairo, Egypt
Why I chose a career in medicine: To be able to help people in most need.
Why I chose this specialty: A family member had a heart condition and as I read about cardiology, I fell in love with it. Do you know that the heart squeezes from the top to bottom, from left to right and then it twists? It is the most effective squeeze possible.
Most rewarding thing about being a doctor: Hearing a patient say that they feel better.
