I like family medicine because it involves being part of every patient's health decision- making process. Most patients consider their primary care physician as part of their family, someone with whom they can share all their health concerns. The warmth with which my patients regard me is one big reason for choosing family practice.
I am originally from Bangalore, which is a very cosmopolitan and technologically savvy city in the southern part of India. Dealing with complex psychosocial situations are challenges I enjoy and providing timely access to primary and urgent care as well as treating elderly patients with multiple co-morbidities. I work with my patients to maintain an accurate history of their health including all symptoms and a list of all current medications. You should always maintain an updated list of medication from all of your current physicians. Also, having relevant imaging studies is helpful, but most important is being open and honest with your physician.
