I have been in the medical field since 2008. I started with a big family practice, but the majority of my time was spent in Pediatric Care. I made the switch to Orthopedics in 2017. For me, patient care means encouragement, compassion, being emotionally supportive, comforting patients when they need it the most, and being a good listener; because sometimes patients just need to be heard. Most importantly, helping patients achieve their goals in each stage of recovery.
