What do you attribute your success to?

  • He attributes his success to God and his parents for instilling the values within himself, and he knows that it was his calling from God to become a doctor. He witnessed his grandfather at the age of 10 have a heart attack, and from that moment going froward he knew he had to become the first doctor in his family and to answer the calling that God has on his life. He wants to help his patients to have and live the best life possible.
