'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.
The nice thing about my practice is that I can see someone from adolescence all the way to menopause and beyond. So whether they’re pregnant at the time or they’re just coming for a general checkup, I can be their doctor.
I think with — especially first time mothers — a lot of my first few visits with them is education. Educating them on what to expect during the pregnancy, what they should be doing to keep themselves healthy, what changes they’re going to notice in their bodies as they go through their pregnancy. Because if they know what to expect, when things happen to them they’re less scary.
