Here’s what Dr. Abdul has to say about being a medical professional.
“I love my work and I am passionate about what I do. Over the years I have realized it is not always prescribing medication, sometimes it is about listening to the patient and reassuring them that brings about healing. I also believe that preventing a disease rather than treating it is the real success, and that is what I try to do with my patients. The human body has amazing power of healing and we as doctors should facilitate this healing.”
