I chose neurology as my specialty because it constantly inspires me to become a better physician. It stimulates medical curiosity; neurological patients and the inner strength and will power they possess bring out my empathy and strong motivation to heal and alleviate suffering.

My interests in neurology especially focus on neuromuscular diseases, movement disorders, and women's health in neurology .
