    He went to compton community college to get his AA, then he got his BS at Cal St. Fullerton, then his DO at DMU. Now he's a practicing plastic surgeon in CA. Interesting history. There is more information in the link.

    To inspire those premeds who may go to community colleges. You can still accomplish what you want to do as a physician with hard work. :thumbup:

    Chris, either name is ok, but I'd prefer Adapt to avoid confusion. :)

    :laugh: Well either way then. I just changed it because as a future physician, I figured it sounded a bit immature. I'm still slick though. ;)

    The funny thing is a couple people have said the same thing about me in real life. I wear both glasses and contacts. It appears it has followed me even on the internet. :laugh:
