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 a primary care provider is to be the first point of contact for any physical or mental health problem, to identify a path to navigate to the root of the problem, and to solve it in the best possible way. The PCP is also best positioned to identify and provide compassionate care for acute and chronic medical conditions, to provide guidance and educate patients on screening guidelines and to provide appropriate referral services, as needed. The PCP should also motivate patients for early detection of health problems, provide information on lifestyle changes for good health, and to provide necessary reassurance. What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? Helping people make informed decisions to improve their health, quality of life and overall wellness is a great source of joy for me as a healthcare provider. I am passionate about holistic approach to medicine that will help patients be on a path to physical and mental health well being. Helping patients achieve optimal health is my goal, so that they can get back to leading fulfilling lives. My motto is "Let's get started, so we can help you feel better soon!"
