Tell us about your experience as a family doctor? 

I’m always proud and happy of being a family doctor, as I can deliver comprehensive service to our community. I do treat a wide variety of conditions with different age groups. The diversity and the long-term care that I was able to continuously delivered have brought a sense of satisfaction that was in itself rewarding.

I have also been part of multiple community development activities, including a well-known project called Community Orientated Primary Care (COPC), among other empowerment activities.
