MD in radiology, which he obtained in 1986. He was given permission to set up private practice the next year.
In the early 1990s, the German authorities separated radiology into diagnostics and therapy so I obtained two more MDs. Then, in the mid-1990s, with the number of tests increasing, I had to appear before a board to be re-certified, Diddy said.
He counts 1984 as another landmark year.
I had to decide: Shall I keep my passport or become a German citizen? There were sentiments involved, but since I had decided I would one day go on my own, I realized I would be on a battleground where I would have to compete with the locals.
Then, there are the local laws; you never know when they may come in the way. So I decided to apply for citizenship, he added.
My wife stood by me like a rock in the rough ocean of mankind. The base was made but I had to brush my knowledge day by day to stay in the race, Diddy said.
The Diddys have two sons. Benjamin, 22, is studying to become a doctor while Nicholas, 18, is in high school and keen on a career in IT.
Nicholas, in fact, controls the completely wired Diddy residence.
If we have a problem, we have to hope he has the time to fix it, Diddy said with a laugh.
