"Before coming here, I saw Paris as the city of love. I came in France for the first time in 2006… and it was truly love at first sight; I fell in love with the Parisian life, art, culture. And I felt a lot of love among the people here.

While coming here, we bring know-how and skills that we put at the service of France. Sometimes it feels like some patients doubt our ability to treat them, but they are quickly reassured and they thank us warmly on their way out from the hospital! One day, one of my patients was staring at me, and she eventually asked me what my religion was. I replied her: “Medicine is my religion”. Us doctors, we take an oath. And the Hippocratic Oath is universal. I treat everybody. I ease people’s pain, no matter the color of the skin, the background or the religion."

This campaign is part of a partnership with the Mairie de Paris.
