I decided to do cardiology and EP due to the infectious and magnetic personality of Dr. Paydak. He is very interested in the wellbeing of his students. He has been an unbelievable support for me in my career. Some of the “Paydakisms” which I will never forget while navigating through our challenging field have been “If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it is a duck ” and “Do it the same way everyday ”. There are not many like Dr. Paydak!
