One question I get all the time is, “Why did you do training in both internal medicine and psychiatry?” — because it’s kind of an unusual combination and that not that many people have training in both areas.

I love talking to patients. I love getting to know them. I love learning about them, trying to understand who they are, and what they’re struggling with.
