TESTIMONIALS

"The doctor is very easy-going and encouraging. She would constantly check in on me to make sure I did not have any questions regarding a patient after every encounter. She allowed me to take patient histories and examine them early on and encouraged me to learn at the pace I am comfortable at. The doctor has a calming presence and thus, makes patients’ feel at ease, allowing them to explore their worries with her. You never feel pushed, or stressed out around her even if it is your first clinical experience here."

Sana (MD2B Connect Client)

"The doctor was an excellent communicator. She was able to forge strong relationships with her patients and it was inspiring to see the way she cared about them. She was also a great mentor as she gave me the opportunity to evaluate and present the patients to her despite her busy schedule. She was also very encouraging throughout the rotation and that meant a lot to me. I am glad that I chose this rotation to be my first clinical experience in the US."
