I am passionate about my work as an emergency physician because I love caring for the most critically ill patients. In the Emergency Department, we get just a few short moments to figure out why someone is so sick. I enjoy this challenge and, most important, enjoy helping those patients heal. We are at the forefront of life every day in the department, and it is an honor to be a part of some of the most difficult moments in a patient's life. In the Emergency Department, we are there 24/7 for whomever needs our help regardless of ability to pay, and I love knowing that I can be there for whoever needs me.
