My writing flows out of my doctorhood. They are not separate things. They are one. I think the foremost connection between being a doctor and being a writer is the great privilege of having an intimate view of ones fellow humans, the privilege of being there and helping other people at their most vulnerable moments.

I like to tell kids that I started thinking about stories when I first started reading stuff like Dr. Seuss and Go, Dog. Go!, thinking, Oh yeah, thats funny. Id like to do that. And then writing throughout school, but at the same time I was studying pre-med stuff, because my mom told me I should be a doctor.
