Why did you choose FM?
I have always found Family Medicine to be intellectually
challenging as it deals with a wide variety of patients of all ages. It also requires a deep knowledge covering all complex multi-system disease processes. In addition, continuity of care provides family medicine physicians with an
opportunity to bond with patients and treat them as a whole person
addressing their psychosocial issues and educating them about community based
diseases. It is this comprehensive approach that attracted me to Family Medicine.
Why Kaweah Delta?
I am passionate about working in an area with an underserved
community. Even as a medical student I was involved with emergency relief and
community health organizations. Seeing
the diverse patient population of the Central Valley
and Kaweah Delta’s commitment to serving the local community, this was the
obvious choice for me.
