I am a Family Physician. It is not my career or my job. It is who I am.
Growing up in Salt Lake, I always knew I wanted to become a doctor or lawyer.
Seeing my dad read countless court decisions quickly helped me decide on medicine. From middle school through college at the Univeristy of Utah I knew I would become a physician. I received my B.A. of Behavioral Science and Health, and then entered medical school at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in The Bronx, NYC.
After a few short months, I knew I wanted to be a Family Physician. The job description just fit.
I love the clinic.
I love keeping people healthy.
I never thought that the hospital is where medicine should be focused.
Upon graduation, I was proud to declare that I was one of only 2 in my class of 180 going into Family Medicine
