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. And really you have to think about the mind and body as two very complex organ systems, and there’s a lot of interconnection.
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.
