Flora, at age 37, is a true lifesaver, now making a tremendous difference at the Memphis VA, and staff and patients are noticing.
“I think they were just very excited and happy to have someone who wants to do something and wants to advance us into the 21st century,” said Dr. Flora, “and bring the latest and greatest state-of-the-art care for our veterans. I can actually do something here. I can do something here.”
Dr. Flora is also an assistant professor at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, and he’s currently doing research work at the VA trying to develop a nasal swab that can detect lung cancer so patients can avoid intrusive bronchoscopy procedures.
