Making a tangible difference in my patient’s quality of life is what I love most about being a physician. I often see patients when they are going through some of the most difficult times of their lives. That might be because of gradually worsening osteoarthritis or after a single, traumatic injury. I enjoy listening to patients to learn why they came to see me and their goals for recovery so we can determine which treatment options might have the best chance for success. Without a doubt, there is nothing more rewarding than seeing patients at their follow up visits, smiling, happy, and sharing details of their journey on the road to recovery. Knowing I made a difference in that patient’s quality of life makes coming to work every day an absolute joy and privilege.
