I’ve worked at Rush ever since I was in high school, and my initial experience was working in a new intensive care unit and seeing the sickest patients — and many of them had heart disease. And I was involved in kind of the early stages of the world of interventional cardiology and was able to see from the very beginning what could be done to help patients with heart disease.
I really enjoy taking care of the patients before a procedure they might need, then during the procedure, and then afterwards, long term, as well. You can have a sense of whether the patient’s doing well or not, do a lot of making sure that everything’s being done to prevent a future problem. I just think it’s better in multiple ways to not just do the procedure and then never see the patient again but to take care of them long term.
