'We Get Out There and Do'Thousands of students, resident physicians and faculty members volunteer each year as part of the Rush Community Service Initiatives Programs, which celebrates its 25th anniversary next year.
Physician, Reveal ThyselfRush has begun including patient survey results in individual physicians' online profiles. It's among few U.S. medical centers, and the only one in the Midwest, to make this information available to potential patients.
I decided on obstetrics and gynecology because I love what I do. It’s different every day. Nothing’s the same. I can do primary care. I can do surgery. I can do fertility. I can do family planning. We do a lot of in-office surgery and in-office procedures. So we take care of a woman from adolescence all the way through menopause.
I talk a lot to my patients and listen a lot. And if somebody’s very, very concerned or anxious, I’m not going to leave them. I stay and listen to them and talk with them, and hopefully we get things resolved by the time she leaves the office.
