Q: What led you to work Primary care Medicine?
Answer: In 2013, I completed my training at The Brooklyn Hospital Center in New York in Internal Medicine where I also served an extra year as a chief resident from 2012 to 2013.
Subsequently, I moved with my family to Albuquerque, New Mexico, as an inpatient hospitalist, taking care of acute issues in the hospital.
I feel that there is a need of continuity of care while taking care of a patient and this is what I have been trained for; hence, I decided to make the switch to outpatient practice, as I wanted to provide that continuity of care and be more available for my patients.

Q: What would you say is a common misconception about Primary Care Internist?
