MEET

Rizwan Bashir, MD, in his own words

If I could be any
character in literature
or entertainment,
I would be a star athlete,

like Dan Marino or Dwyane
Wade. Being an avid football
and basketball fan growing
up in South Florida, I idolized
these two athletes.

When I was a child, I dreamed of becoming a football

player. I grew up watching the Miami Dolphins, who were pretty
good back then, and imagined playing for them one day. Years
later, being 5-foot-9 or 5-foot-10 and 135 pounds soaking wet,
I realized that was probably not a smart idea.

My first job was as a
patient transporter at
a local hospital in Miami.
This job helped solidify
my interest and passion
to continue to pursue
a career in medicine.

If I weren't a doctor,
I would be a businessman.

I was raised in a family of
businesspeople and grew
up helping my father and
uncles run their small
businesses. Going to college
to study medicine was not
the norm in my family.

To unwind after a long
day, I like to relax on the

My first car
was a used

Toyota Corolla.
When I got my
driver's license,
like most
16-year-olds,
I was unable
to convince my
parents to buy
me a brandnew sports car,
so I settled on
the Corolla.

9

My favorite television
show is probably The Fresh

Prince of Bel-Air or Friends.
I'm still more partial to the sitcoms from when I was growing
up in the '90s and early 2000s
in comparison to the more
recent ones.

sofa and watch sports or
binge-watch whatever series
or sitcom is running-most
recently Game of Thrones.

5

My favorite
restaurant is

Rumi's Kitchen.
Atlanta has some
good restaurants,
but I enjoy their
service and Middle
Eastern-Persian
fusion cuisine.

7

Right now
I'm listening
to podcasts,

TED Talks
and interviews.

10

My favorite part about
summer is being able

to enjoy the outdoors,
including playing sports,
going to the park with the
kids and traveling.
