Along with all of those hopes and dreams come a lot of stress and uncertainty, but being able to help a family through the tough times is the thing I enjoy most. The opportunity to participate in the life of a child and make sure that he or she goes through life healthy and able to reach his or her full potential is the reason I became a pediatrician.
