"As a primary care physician, the doctor builds a strong doctor-patient visit starting with the first visit, ensuring good adherence with follow-up visits. He also emphasizes the importance of communication between different medical specialties (during the rotation I had the opportunity to discuss many patients' diagnoses and treatments with hematologists, radiologists, and neurologists. As a teacher and mentor, he provides an environment for discussion of potential diagnoses, most appropriate lab tests/imaging, and possible treatments.
