Dr. Azmat Riaz is an accomplished and highly qualified Gynecologist and a Presidential Award Winner
“Prof. Dr. Yasmin Rashid is the reason I chose to become a doctor and later a gynecologist. Met her when i was waiting for my secondary school result in Skardu at Sadpara lake. As the head of King Edward Medical College, Gynecology Department, she used to bring doctors’ team from Lahore and conduct clinics and perform surgeries for free in Skardu. My father knew her well and took me to her to help me decide about my career. Madam was taking tea and gave me enough time and motivation to choose pre-medical. ‘Your area needs good doctors and gynecologists and you should select pre-medical and become a gynecologist’ she had said.”
