The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, 1986
From the time he started in university, his way has always been to take the road less travelled. Although determined to become a medical doctor, his love of the arts led him to take a different premedical path, one that mixed literature, philosophy, history and sociology with biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics. His interests range from photography and travel, to history and literature, to canoeing wild rivers and fly fishing, yet his first loves are his family and plastic surgery.
“I have always believed medicine combined the arts and science in a way no other profession could. Even in my interviews for medical school when I was twenty years old I said I thought only through a career in medicine could I combine these interests. Plastic surgery combines art and science far better than any other branch of medicine. It is not unusual for me to spend a half hour with a new patient talking about just about anything but plastic surgery, if she or he is so inclined. It is just so enjoyable getting to know people. And everyone has a story to tell.”
Striving always to provide excellence in Cosmetic Plastic Surgery
