During college, he was named Student of the Year by the Cactus Yearbook, and was awarded Outstanding Business Senior upon graduation.

After medical school, Dr. Paul completed a rigorous internship in surgery, medicine, and pediatrics in Fort Worth, Texas at John Peter Smith Hospital.

During residency, Dr. Paul was then chosen from a highly competitive field of applicants to train for two years as an American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS) Fellow. This was quite an honor, as less than 20% of applicants are chosen each year. Under the mentorship of Dr. Gerald Harris (world renowned orbital and oculofacial surgeon and past editor of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery) and a team of amazing mentors, Dr. Paul completed his ASOPRS fellowship at the prestigious Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. He pursued further elective training in cosmetic surgery of the eyelids and face in Miami, Beverly Hills, and the greater Chicago area. He is thrilled to return to his home in Texas.
