From the time he was a small child, Khaled Zreik knew he wanted to be a doctor.

"Since I was five years old, I've had an interest in helping people," says the Detroit Lakes physician, who purchased a home on Muskrat Lake with his wife, Fatme, in June 2008.


More specifically, Zreik was drawn to caring for people with cancer. Though reluctant to speak of it at first, Zreik admits his career choice was determined, in part, by a personal loss.
