“Live in the present. Do the things that need to be done. Do all the good you can each day. The future will unfold.” — Peace Pilgrim

My work as a physician is a source of personal joy, gratitude and deep satisfaction. The opportunity to be of service to others, to help in some small way to relieve their suffering, improve their lives and to learn daily from the challenges and diagnostic dilemmas they bring is an awesome way to spend my life. “Living the dream,” as I often say!

Dr. Victor S. Sierpina is the WD and Laura Nell Nicholson Family Professor of Integrative Medicine and Professor of Family Medicine at UTMB.
