Practice philosophy: Always see the person behind the disease.
What are you passionate about and why? Bringing people together because while medicine is healing, there is no substitute for spending time with loved ones.
If you weren't a health care provider, what would you be? Sportscaster or color commentator because I love being a part of the game.
Why did you become a provider? When did you know this was the career for you? I became a provider because my mother (Dr. Green) was my hero growing up and she touched so many lives that I couldn't imagine a better career.
What is something you have learned from your patients? Each patient has their own set of priorities and different things matter to different people. When you discover that, the provider-patient relationship can flourish.
What is one of the challenges of this career you enjoy? And why? Updating the families on their loved ones condition. Can be easy or hard depending on the news, but it's an essential part of each patients recovery.
What is your personal health goal? Take each day at a time, remain mentally present, and make one healthy choice per day.
What is the best thing you've done for your health or the best health advice you've received? Change is slow, so managing your expectations can be just as important as implementing changes.
What are you most proud of? Realizing my life-long dream to become a physician.
