Naomi's Healthcare Philosophy

I was always interested in the medical since a child. I do not have one incident that pushed me into the medical field. My older brother is a surgeon and helped guide me to my profession. He had me involved in medical externships in his hospitals every summer during high school. I was exposed to may fields of medicine during the summer and always was interested in the spine and neurology.
