Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists.

Spasoje M. Neskovic

Dr Neskovic was born in Belgrade, Serbia, on February 12, 1953, in a farmer's family, and he was supposed to continue farming the same way his father, grandfather and grandfather did. But, from may be age 3 he wanted to become a physician or maybe a Serbian priest, but that desire to become a physician was so strong that he never deviated from his original idea which became his lifelong passion and his calling. He remembers clearly when he put on that white coat as a medical student in Belgrade University in 1971, and he still has that real and a very distinct feeling which is hard to explain, and he has that feeling every single time when he puts on his white coat.
