Why I am a member of ASCRS:

I fell in love with the speciality of colon and rectal surgery because of the people. The mentors and role models I had in residency and fellowship demonstrated an elegant balance of patient empathy, technical skill, clinical knowledge and a passion to treat the most complex and difficult surgical pathology. The ASCRS embodies these very traits on an organizational level—one in which I am a proud member of.

Why I am a member of ASCRS:

ASCRS is the heart and soul of our specialty. I take great pride in being a colon and rectal surgeon, and ASCRS provides me with the opportunity to connect meaningfully with surgeons from across the country who share common interests and goals. ASCRS also provides our patients with high-quality educational resources, which highlight the benefits of colon and rectal surgery specialty training.

Why I am a member of ASCRS:

I first came to the meeting when I was a 4th year resident, and I realized so many members were happy and enjoyed their profession. I wanted to be like them, and be a part of a society that was friendly, did good work, and enjoyed camaraderie. I have found that all my initial impressions were true, and I have continued to be a member and try to help where I can.
