Private Practice Brings Me Satisfaction

“Private practice tends to be slower. It’s a slow-paced day. But you get a lot of satisfaction ’cause you do get to spend up to 30 minutes with a patient. You really get to not only review their entire health profile, but you tend to get to know them a little better as well. What I’ve done in my public practice is I’ve kind of divided it into two parts.

So I still, for my own personal patients, get to spend that type of time, get to know them and develop that rapport which is the best part about being a doctor. But at the same time I get the hustle and bustle of a walk-in clinic, where I can see up to 30 people in a half-day. Cuts down the time per patient, but the medicine obviously is very interesting.”
