I love the challenge of the practice of the science, the medicine, as well as the legal aspect. I find it intellectually challenging to go from one day, focusing on neurosurgical issues, to the next day, doing something totally different. I also think it’s really important to represent healthcare professionals. They need our help, especially in these times.
