Describe the most rewarding experience that you have had working with a patient?
I have had many rewarding experiences with so many patients that it really is hard to choose one. Each time a patient comes in and had said that a conversation that we've had has made a difference in their quality of life, or when a patient comes in who has been on any of our wellness programs feeling more alive, I am reminded of why I do this work. I have patients who on our programs lose30+ lbs, patients who renew relationships, patients who were dealing with infertility that when we work with them conceive, and patients who were depressed gain a new sense of aliveness and fervor for life with our coaching programs. I have Men who when we balance their hormones are the happiest and most energetic they've been in years. It's all enlivening to me, and I can't say I could choose ONE that is most enlivening.
What is your charity organization of choice and why?
I have a couple. I donate to HOPE House (which is a grass roots organization committed to supporting and empowering single mothers and their children who are survivors of Domestic Violence and helping them to get back on their feet after leaving their assailant. NSPIRE is an organization dedicated to providing the tools and training to men and women who are homeless so that they can leave that lifestyle behind for good.
What is your favorite quote or saying?
"We must be the change we want to see in the world" Ghandi
What makes your specialties the right fields of medicine for you?
My primary specialty is in family medicine and what makes that perfect for me is that I get to take family practice in whatever direction I choose. Over the years I have developed and expanded my skills and services to be able to care for and empower patients in a very unique way through combining integrative and holistic medicine. I'd say that the unique set of services that we offer is even set apart from other functional medicine and integrative medicine physicians.
When (your age) did you first realize you wanted to enter the health & medical field? And did you experience anything in particular to motivate you to achieve this prestigious goal?
I believe coming into the medical field as a physician was a natural expression for me. From a young age, I loved taking care of people. It started with my family (I'm the oldest of 7 children). The awareness of wanting to be a doctor came later (in 8th grade), but there wasn't some catastrophic or pivotal experience in my life that motivated me. It was like I just woke up to who I was (a healer) and that was it.
In a perfect world, when would you like to retire, where would you go and what would you do?
I don't think I'd ever fully retire as I'd be bored to death! I envision a transition of my talents from being the provider to empowering and training physicians. I'm out to transform what it truly is to be a physician, to remind doctors that they are still healers, and to unite the various healing disciplines (chiropractic, naturopathic, allopathic, etc). I'm already starting that process now, and I believe as time moves on, that will become my new calling. However, my first love is patient care, so I will likely always maintain some type of direct patient contact even in that transition. When you love what you do, it just doesn't feel like work.
