MedShr: What inspired you to
become a doctor?

Dr.

MedShr: What do you love about
your job?

Dr.
Daruwalla

love showing care and compassion to my patients and alleviating their burden of
illness if and when I can. Together with what I call soft skills in the
practice and art of medicine, I am very excited to be part of the digital

MedShr: Why do you use MedShr?

Dr.

It’s a simple and easy to use platform that promotes the
development of a global network of doctors and healthcare professionals. With
the sharing of information ultimately benefiting both users and more
importantly patients, MedShr truly has immense potential. Having integrated
solutions to existing problems with confidentiality, data protection and
consent already addressed, the platform is a great one stop shop for all
professionals in the healthcare industry and certainly a must-have for all
medical students and trainees.
