Tell us about yourself

I started as a manager in one of the physiotherapy facilities in 2004 and understood that I really like to help people who were suffering from pain on their way to recovery,

In my mind, I associate myself with our patients and the pains that they are going through and try to help them in any possible, explaining their situation and ways to make their life and medical condition better. I talk to and know every patient who comes to our facility and ensure that our staff treats everybody equally and with utmost care. Helping people to get better brings me satisfaction and inner peace.
