In your opinion, what should be the role of a primary care provider for a patient, taking into account both physical health and behavioral health needs? The role of the primary care doctor is to specialize and become an expert in the patient while maintaining a broad enough skillset to address most common health issues thoroughly. I aim to get a complete understanding of a patient as a human being and partner with them as their point of contact through acute and chronic conditions involving physical and behavioral health. My goal is to provide individualized care that promotes optimal health and always treats the patient as a unique individual. What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? I'm passionate about working as a physician since it enables to me work alongside a patient by both addressing active health issues and proactively promoting preventive strategies to optimize health and longevity. I'm particularly passionate about cultivating a strong doctor-patient relationship and providing holistic, individualized care to patients. Tell us a little bit about yourself.
