"I come from a family of doctors. My father was a dermatologist-venereologist, both of my grandmothers were gynecologists and my aunt was an ENT specialist back in the former USSR. Since early childhood, I witnessed people come to our home seeking medical treatment. This atmosphere contributed to my interest in pursuing medicine and desire to help those in need.”
