'We Get Out There and Do'Thousands of students, resident physicians and faculty members volunteer each year as part of the Rush Community Service Initiatives Programs, which celebrates its 25th anniversary next year.
Physician, Reveal ThyselfRush has begun including patient survey results in individual physicians' online profiles. It's among few U.S. medical centers, and the only one in the Midwest, to make this information available to potential patients.
My main focus is reproductive health in women of all ages, young girls all the way up to post-menopause. So, anything that is happening with a woman that in uncomfortable or abnormal for her in terms of her human reproductive tract is where I hone in and I focus.
The vast majority of years that a woman is going to live her life, she’s going to be reproductively inclined and there are a lot of questions that patients have. So, my job is to really help to try and educate my patients so that they can make better decisions for themselves.
I really like to look at the whole person because after all you have to really focus on the whole person in order to really get at the underlying problem in any medical condition.
