What do you find most rewarding about caring for patients?
"One of my career missions is to serve patients in rural communities in Nebraska. I get a lot of professional satisfaction to provide a high quality of care to rural citizens because I know it saves them a trip to the city and the impersonal nature of a big hospital system. I have the opinion that rural folks really appreciate their physicians much more than the urban patients do. I also like to be involved in patient care at a higher level than what Primary Care physicians in the urban clinics are able to provide."
What about Syracuse Area Health makes you smile?
"Regarding things that make me smile about SAH I would say the staff I have worked with are very nice, kind, down to earth folks like I would expect to find in a small community. The sense of teamwork with the physicians, nurses and staff is evident and makes me smile as well."
