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. For some patients it’s a real simple issue that has a fairly quick fix, but for other patients, what they’re dealing with are very complex issues. And so the solutions are also complex. And I find that very rewarding, to help patients in those ways.
