Why did you choose Anesthesiology?
Anesthesiology is a fascinating field in which you have the opportunity to care for patients in a real time setting. It offers a nice balance between critical thinking and procedures. Also, it offers the opportunity to care for a wide variety of patients: adults, children, elderly patients, pregnant patients, patients in the ICU, and patients with both acute and chronic pain.

Where do you live in Chicago (area of the city) and if you like that area, why?
I live around the Wicker Park area and I love it. There are all sorts of things to do in the area and it is always lively. Also the commute to work in the morning is easy and quick.
