Growing up almost all of my family was in the field of medicine, my father and brother included. Of course my family background influenced my decision to become a doctor, but I truly love my profession. I have now been a physician for over 30 years and I still carry the same passion in to my practice. Working in an underserved area, I urge my patients to eat healthy and concentrate on their physical well-being because I know how hard their lives can be.
My patients motivate me daily; knowing that I can provide them with the best care for a low cost. I particularly like working with families. Because I studied pediatrics and work as a general practitioner I feel as though I am able to provide the appropriate care for an entire family. As a result of my dedication to these underserved areas the people I treat are very appreciative and I have made a lot of friends within the community.
I also have a family of my own — a son who is a lawyer, and a daughter who is working in public health. Being a family oriented person, it means the most to me when I am able to effectively treat my patients and seeing them leave with a smile on their face. I remember one patient in particular whose mother would send me a photo every year of her child until graduation. Once the patient had graduated high school, they personally brought me a graduation photo of themselves. I still have these photos in my office today. Over the years I have gotten to form many of these special bonds with my patients and I hope to make many more.
