Romel Bertulfo, M.D.
Why did you decide to go into medicine?
My father had a huge influence in me to become a physician like him. I have seen in him the satisfaction and fulfillment of taking care and being of help to sick people. The smile of a thankful patient is priceless.
To me, treating people well means:
To empathize with one's suffering.
Favorite place to visit:
Any place rich in history.
