Please note that during peak periods this preceptor has multiple students ​per month (as many as 25). What that means is that you will see fewer patients during those months (< 5 patients). Despite the presence of multiple learners in the office, this physician preceptor has developed a system which allows him to work with each student closely. 

​​

Who should consider this rotation: IMG seeking hands-on patient care experience. IMGs seeking careers in family medicine or internal medicine will find this rotation useful.

 

Will a letter of recommendation be offered: Yes, assuming that the IMG meets the expectations of the rotation. Dr. Desai will provide the physician with guidelines which will improve the quality of the letter.

TESTIMONIALS

"Very passionate and easy to talk to. It is very comfortable to work with him."

Jun (MD2B Connect Client)

"This is one of the best rotations where you can easily approach patients and get used to the Electronic Health Record System."

Carly (MD2B Connect Client)

I"I could not ask for a better rotation and better experience than the once I had. The doctor is exceptional. He has amazing personality and great sense of humor. He is a phenomenal educator. I thoroughly enjoyed the way he was teaching me, challenging me and inspiring me to do my very best every time I saw a patient. He quickly became my mentor and a role model for me.

 

This rotation is quite different from what I`ve seen before in terms that it allows to choose your own pace: you can take your time or work faster and see more patients. That is a rare example when you are truly your own manager and can decide what to do based on personal priorities and/or range of your comfort zone.

 

There was a lot of other rotators and I had an opportunity to team up with so many students/ graduates/ residents on patient evaluation and management and see huge variety of medical cases. I not only polished my clinical knowledge and skills, I also naturally improved my communication and social skills.

 

Special thanks to the in-house team and sensational work they do. I am also extremely grateful to Manish and Dr. Desai for their suggestion on choosing this rotation.

Oleg (MD2B Connect Client)

"This rotation will provide the opportunity to encounter a patient independently, discuss with the doctor the plan and write the complete official note. You will be doing real work and therefore its the opportunity to do it right. This rotation will allow you to become autonomous in providing care for patients. You will realize how much you are capable of doing before having to ask for help."

Sebastian (MD2B Connect Client)

"The doctor has an outstanding bedside manner and clinical knowledge. You can get a real hands-on experience here. The doctor himself is a living example of an outstanding physician with a non-US background, who is running a successful clinic in the heart of NY. Especially, the way the doctor communicates with patients and co-workers is truly impressive."

Jonghanne (MD2B Connect Client)

"The doctor is an amazing role model. He is truly helpful and motivated to help IMGs. A very fun and easy going rotation. Fully hands on clinical experience. Very helpful if you need to write step two usmle cs."

Misty (MD2B Connect Client)

"The doctor has been a great preceptor, very welcoming and approachable. Tries his best to make you feel comfortable and addresses any concerns you have. Great exposure to the EHR. Overall, it was a great experience and I had the opportunity to work with lots of students."

Bibi (MD2B Connect Client)

"Very friendly and pleasant to be around. Boosts morale and brings out the best in students."

Dillan (MD2B Connect Client)
