I work as an internist, and so I see adults and I take care of all their various acute and chronic problems. I like having long-term relationships with my patients and getting to know them. That’s probably one of my favorite things about being a doctor. I always tell patients my job is to do the work and understand the studies and to give them the recommendations about how to take care of themselves. But patients also need to tell me what they want and we work together. So when we have a cooperation between us, that’s a real success. It’s such a privilege every day to be a doctor. When I stop and think about what I get to do — and as I said yesterday, my mother-in-law was very sick and to just be able to comfort her and also help her get better, it really is an amazing job that we get to do.
