Is this for a consultation or are you an established patient?

  • Consultation
  • Established Patient
"The mental stress of having an operation is sometimes worse for the patient than the operation itself. As their provider, my role is to reassure them by listening and validating their concerns. My ability to place myself in their situation makes it easier to communicate with them and alleviate some of their stresses."

Why I Became a Medical Provider

"I was an undergrad studying engineering, and I joined the Army between freshman and sophomore year for tuition money. Although I was an infantry soldier, I was exposed to the discipline of medicine by field medics. They taught me how to start IVs, splint fractures, etc. I enjoyed learning about the human body and how to heal diseases and conditions. When I returned to school, I changed my major to chemistry/pre-med."
