If I could use one word to describe my day, I would describe it as tiring. It starts with rushing to the facility and attending to countless patients before I grab my quick lunch and start attending patients again. I then have a specific time for patients coming back for their second visits. Being an orthopedic surgeon, I have a lot of surgery cases to handle too. Thankfully, my assistants are well aware of my routine and schedule surgeries accordingly. I start off at 10 AM and attend patients till 10 PM with two 30 minute breaks in between.


  • It pays very well.
  • A stable career with a lot of benefits.
  • It is an unreal feeling to help people and serve the community.


  • Long working hours are normal for healthcare workers, the story of every other day.
  • There are some difficult patients to handle, which ruins your day.
  • The physical and emotional demands of the job can be extremely stressful.
