Dale Raymond A. Abraham, M.D.
I finished my elementary and high school at Lourdes School, Quezon City, then took up BS Biology at the University of Santo Tomas (Batch 1986), after which I decided to continue to Medicine at the same university. I was really aiming at that time for surgery so after the Boards, I decided to have my residency training in General Surgery at the Veterans Memorial Medical Center. During my GS training, the subspecialty of Plastic Surgery caught my attention and it was during my senior years that I had myself focused on this interesting and challenging subspecialty....Plastic Surgery. The fellowship in Plastic Surgery lasted for a total of three years where I had the opportunity to train with a great majority of the best plastic surgeons in the Philippines from different hospitals including Veterans Memorial Medical Center, Makati Medical Center, University of the East-Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Medical Center, Rizal Medical Center, East Avenue Medical Center, and Quezon City General Hospital. Presently I am on my private practice in Quezon City and Manila, Philippines. You can click on "Plastic Surgery" link for added information.
With regards to Web design, I knew nothing about the internet since last year when my cousin sort of introduced me to the Web and subsequently to designing a Home page. I just watched him while he was working on his page once and he mentioned something about Geocities. So, it was during the end of December last year that I found myself browsing through this site (geocities) where they sort of teach you how to create a basic home page. A few sessions and i did learn fast some HTML language. After that Web Page at Geocities, I heard about MS Frontpage '98 which they said makes Web design fast and easy and more creative. Indeed, Web designing has never been more fun. Updating your site will take only about 10-15 minutes of your time depending on the amount of data you'll put in.
