Where did the idea for your career come from?
I saw the need to help medical students and graduates that were unable to advance their careers in residency and fellowship. I was looking at the sever doctor shortage in America and needed to do something to help humanity. I also started the Consultancy arm of RMG to help health systems in America and abroad, especially third world countries that need to build up their health care systems. I also thought a good way of expanding doctors is to start residency programs at community hospitals and that is what we are doing. Helping humanity through medicine, by creating the future doctors of America and improving healthcare globally.
I started The Everest Foundation , a non-profit foundation as a need to help medical schools and the community by funding initiatives, to build up our healthcare system. Funding research and doing community outreach, is important to give back

What is your favorite quote?
“There is a tide in the affairs of men.
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
On such a full sea are we now afloat,
And we must take the current when it serves,
Or lose our ventures. “– Shakespeare
