What is your practice philosophy? To offer the highest level of medical care while listening to my patients and keeping them as involved, informed and comfortable as possible.
If I wasn’t a provider, I would be a: Teacher
Why did you become a provider? When did you know this was the career for you? I knew as a young kid that I wanted to go into medicine. I have a passion to help others. As a PA, I have the opportunity to make a difference to help my patients have a better quality of life.
Something I have learned from my patients is: Each patient is a special human being who knows their body best so I need to listen to what they are telling me and I must tailor my care to meet the needs of every individual.
One of the challenges of this career that I enjoy is (and why): Helping patients, with a skin condition that has affecting them socially and emotionally, to gain their self-confidence and join back once we treat their skin condition.
My personal health goal is: Continue to live a healthy lifestyle so that I can give great care to my patients. Take heed to the same advice I give my patients on skin care.
