    Personal Statement

    When I was in college, even before I had any inkling that I wanted to go into medicine, I ended up in an intensive care unit with a fractured sternum and a bruised heart. My experience there very much formulated how I approach any patient.

    I think it would behoove doctors to think about themselves from that aspect: The patient doesn’t know what’s going on. They don’t know the technology. They don’t know the technical terms. They don’t know what the endpoint is.

    Hopefully I can anticipate their needs and their questions, and make them that much more comfortable and reassured. I talk to my patients. I try to spend a lot of my time communicating. I think that’s very important.
