What do you look for when choosing a doctor?
"The most important attribute a doctor can have is to be a good listener. Too often in modern medicine, we stare at a doctor's back as he or she stares at a computer screen. If a doctor is facing towards me and listening, I can tell he or she is interested in my health and will pick up on the important details that will ensure I am provided with the best care possible."
What do you like the most about working in the medical industry?
"One of the beautiful things about medicine, is it allows you to see how strong people are. Whether it's a patient, a patient's family member, a nurse, medical assistant, doctor, receptionist (I could go on!) ... medicine has its unique way of testing our resilience and spirit. I am always in awe when I witness people's innate strength and ability helping them to overcome these challenges."
