I find that collaboration is really important because it brings the patient to the table, as well. I feel that simply dictating medical prescriptions, medical guidelines only goes so far. Sitting down, understanding the background and what brought that patient to your office in the first place is so very much integral in primary care and family medicine, and it’s something that I enjoy on a day-to-day basis. Medicine is simply not just medications, surgical history, allergies, it’s a multitude of various factors — things such as work environment, sleep, diet, exercise. Every day in the office is a very different situation — you can see patients that are coming for acute injuries such as a sprained ankle, elevated blood pressure, to chronic management of their diabetes and insulin regimens — and I enjoy that aspect that every day is a little bit different and dynamic in that regard.
