Why Did You Choose to Work in Pain Management?
Pain management entails everything I love about medicine. It’s rewarding and challenging. It also presents an opportunity to contribute to improving some of our nation’s biggest healthcare needs.
What Are the Biggest Challenges of This field of Medicine?
As the field has progressed, the options for treating pain are seemingly endless. The challenge of pain management is tying together the patient’s individual situation with the many therapies available. I find the best way to do this is simple: take the time to listen and get to know your patient.
What’s the Most Rewarding Part of Your Job?
Pain can be frustrating, emotionally draining, even all-encompassing. The best part of my job is helping to relieve patients from the burden of a life in chronic pain. I love the excitement a patient gets from effective therapy.
What Are Your Favorite Past-Times?
I enjoy spending time with my family, golfing, hockey, playing guitar, and hiking.
