Dr. Bankole gets great joy and satisfaction in helping patients improve the quality of their life by taking part in their care and management. He most enjoys the relationships he develops with his patients and shares a positive outlook throughout their medical journey.
In general my aim is to cure if possible, if not treat the underlying condition to prevent further damage.
