Kamaljot Singh, M.D.
Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery
Why did you decide to go into medicine?
I think I realized my calling in my teenage years. I thoroughly enjoyed math and science, but more so, I liked caring for my grandmother. She was a brittle diabetic, and I took up the responsibility of checking her sugar levels and dosing her insulin with some help from my parents. I found that caring for others was rewarding as I utilized my knowledge and skill and balanced it with some compassion
When I’m not working, you can find me
Changing diapers. My family and I were blessed to recently have had twins. We are overjoyed with our precious cargo, but there’s no rest for the weary as they can be soiling machines
To me, treating people well means
Thinking beyond the textbook. So much of medicine becomes algorithmic and standardized approaches. My reason for choosing plastic surgery is that I can customize my surgeries based on a patient’s desires, as well as his/her physical characteristics. Each patient is a unique challenge, and by recognizing this fact, we re-humanize medicine
