Professional Summary

I'm an enterprising Doctor of Medicine looking for opportunities to work as a Medical/ Clinical Assistant. In my previous experience as a doctor in India and as a crisis counselor and an observer/scribe in the US, I have developed a well-rounded skill set in the evaluation and documentation of patient encounters in a health care setting.
