Dr. Amit Sood is a professor of medicine at Mayo Clinic College of Medicine. He was born and raised in Bhopal, India, where he had his initial medical training and practice. He elected to move to the United States in order to participate in techniques that were on the cutting edge of medicine. Upon moving, Sood realized that unhappiness and despair were as much of an issue in the U.S. as they were in India. He also learned that money was not the solution to this issue.
