Being a doctor was my life goal since my childhood. During my secondary school education, I was so lucky to personally get acquainted with Dr. Mária Szentcsíki, who became a leading role model in my medical career.
I finished my studies at the Semmelweis University Medical School in 1993. Subsequently, still at present, I work in Semmelweis University ÁOK, where in 2000 I graduated as an internist and in 2002 as an endocrinologist. The field I represent is the science of the hormone system, a very specialized branch of internal medicine, which I have learned from masters of international standing, such as Dr. Edit Gláz and Dr. Károly Rácz professors. My main areas of interest are, in addition to some diseases of the pituitary gland, thyroid – parathyroid gland, and the adrenal gland, medical conditions of the reproductive system. For almost a decade and a half, I have been actively involved in the graduate medical training of our university and in the teaching of internal medicine in the Hungarian and German grades. The art of healing, the love of knowledge, and the training of the doctors of the future are noble tasks that are all obligatory; this is my creed!

One of the biggest disease of our time is diabetes and obesity. During the treatment and cure of these, it is inevitable that our endocrine system is screened. I believe that it is worthwhile to look at a person as a whole, to restore the balance of the body, to eliminate the causes of the imbalance, and not only treat the symptoms or cure laboratory abnormalities.
