"Leader in Fetal Medicine and Women's Issues"

"I had a revelation one day while walking down the street in Manhattan. I was working two jobs at the time, one at a hospital in Harlem, and it occurred to me that I was seeing people on the street who were sick and if I really wanted to help change the world, I had to start with the physical reality of helping these people get well so they could contribute too."

"Following the Golden Rule!"

"I am a people-person who really likes science and helping people, so being a doctor combines both. The longer you practice, however, the more you understand that doctoring is an art as well as a science. My advice to young girls is 'if you want to make a difference, being a doctor is not easy, but it is certainly worth it!'"

"Leader in Pediatric Ophthalmology"

"I've always wanted to make a difference in the lives of children. My passion has been to improve eye care for kids. I would guess that I've treated more than 100,000 children over several decades. I've also tried to instill in my medical students the need to be involved in community service."

"Patience, passion and perseverance!"

"I have naturally liked helping people all my life, plus I was someone who wanted a profession. Being a doctor is a life profession, an art as well as a science, and you only understand the 'calling' until you've practiced for a while."
