Personal Statement

I have been subspecialized for more than 30 years with interest and expertise in diagnosing diseases of the abdomen, pelvis and chest. I have already spent my career performing and interpreting ultrasound, especially vascular ultrasound. I am the medical director of the vascular laboratory which is one of the oldest in the country and among the first to be accredited for its quality.
