He witnessed it first-hand with his family, and he chose to go into medicine and bridge that gap. He believes that long term relationships that come with primary care will create the change he wants to see in healthcare. He was drawn to Gonzaba after witnessing patients feeling at home in a welcoming environment. His ultimate goal as a physician is to serve the community.
