Q: What led you to work in Primary Care?
Answer: In 2013, I completed my training at The Brooklyn Hospital Center in New York in Internal Medicine and then went to work in Albuquerque, New Mexico as an inpatient hospitalist.
While working in the inpatient unit, I felt that I could get a better understanding of my patientâ€™s needs while working as a primary care physician in an outpatient setting and try to prevent hospitalizations for my patients.
Also, while working in the hospital setting, you donâ€™t feel that connection with the patient. I wanted to have greater contact with patients to take care of them as a whole.
