I had a smooth and very interesting conversation with Dr. Linda and am letting you discover her humanitarian and loving personality,

The Interview:

Why you chose to be an Ear, Nose, Throat & Head Surgeon?

I actually didn’t want to and it was not planned but life just shifts your plans. I wanted to study engineering or nuclear physics because I love mathematics and physics and I could just solve formulas and equations for fun even, but after facing a life situation I realized how important it is to have a doctor in your family, someone to rely on in these situations so I decided to study biology and medicine and that’s how I became a physician. An Ear, Nose, Throat & Head Surgeon because I loved it, it is challenging.

 What is the best thing about being an Ear, Nose, Throat & Head Surgeon?

It is interesting because of the variety of the cases, and I meet all types of patients from all ages. When I was on duty and got calls I always loved facing the challenges and discovering new cases and solving important and complicated health issues. Being someone who loves to learn it was an amazing process.

How do you stay up to date with new treatments and new technologies and surgeries?

I attend seminars and conferences and I travel a lot

How do you handle the stress and pressure of physician’s work load?

I do agree on the stress and pressure, but it is always what physicians face once they chose this path.

It is also very rewarding and satisfying because I follow up my patients closely and care about how things are going for them, how their lifestyle had become after the procedure, and it is always nice, the feeling that you get when you make people’s health and life better, it is worth it.

What would you tell medical students who are considering Ear, Nose, Throat & Head Surgery?

Actually once you set a goal and you love what you are doing and you are determined to go to the end, medicine is like marriage, it is a lifetime commitment, a mission, it is humanitarian, humbling, anyone who will assume the full responsibilities of it, will do it with no second thoughts.
