I’m much more of a listener than a talker. And so I like to listen to everything that the patient has to say, and try to balance it out — not only their physical symptoms, but whatever is going on in their life — their emotional and relationship type issues. Those things are all important in the medical decision making.
Neurology overall just has a great fascination to me because it deals with the last frontier in medicine, which is learning about the human mind and the brain and how it works. It’s still a great black box and a great mystery, but we’re learning ever so more about it as time goes on. And so it’s just an exciting time and place to be at Rush, to be studying the manifestations of human disease as seen in the brain, and to try to apply our current understanding of how that works to try to make people feel better.
