I majored in biology in pre-med and I thought I might be a teacher.  After I graduated I worked a couple years for a physical therapist, and I knew I wanted a career in medicine.  I worked one summer with a wonderful doctor in rural Ohio.  I saw how he was so involved with his patients.  That’s what led me to internal medicine.  I like getting to know my patients, educating them, and making them a partner in their healthcare.  I’d rather fix something with a lifestyle change than a pill, but I’ll do what it takes.  I joined Partners in Health because I liked the doctors’ priorities.  They didn’t ask me how many patients I could see in a day.  They just told me that the patient always comes first.”
