Dr. Saad always knew that he wanted to go into the medical profession, but the decision felt more firm while attending his high school in Kuwait.

Once the decision had been made, Dr. Saad knew that he would need a professional mentor to help him make more decisions about his career. He chose to work with the greatest pediatric surgeon known in the United States, Dr. H Biemann Othersen.
