Letter of thanks: To Kingman, I'm humbled

On Monday, Sept. 19, I was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Kingman Chamber of Commerce.

I am very thankful and humbled for this recognition. I want to dedicate my award to my grandmother who taught me to love, compassion and care for humanity.

I dedicate this award to the people of Kingman who have expressed confidence in me. I dedicate this award to my brother M. Azam Khan, MD, a local general surgeon, who guided me to be an anesthesiologist and pain management physician.

When I moved to Kingman in 1984, I was criticized by my colleagues and friends in New York for settling in a small town. Kingman Chamber of Commerce recognized in 2005 with the Citizen of the Year award.

I want to say, “THANK YOU KINGMAN!” I am glad that I chose Kingman where I came young and grew old. Now my son Harris Salim, MD, a graduate of Kingman High School class of 1999, made the same choice and settled here in Kingman as an internal medicine specialist.

I dedicate my award to him for this confidence and trust in Kingman. Thank you Harris!

Attiya Salim, MD
