TESTIMONIALS

"The doctor is an excellent teacher. He is very, kind, and respectful with the patients. He is very knowledgeable and always took great care of me."

Oliver (MD2B Connect Client)

"The doctor is very knowledgeable and compassionate, learning from him has been a privilege. Not only does he have an excellent way of connecting with patients, but the staff respects and looks up to him. This rotation is multifaceted and includes an incredible opportunity to learn and improve medical knowledge, rapport building, levels of care to name a few - a very well rounded experience."

Shivani (MD2B Connect Client)

“The attending truly made me feel a part of the decision making process from the start of the admission to how we could arrive at the decision that a patient was ready to be sent home. He actively improved my self confidence in making my own decisions in the same processes going forward when I’m able to enter a residency program to complete residency and become Board Certified. He also made every effort to introduce me as a fellow colleague to any member of staff that we came into contact with and that also helped my comfort in working as a physician in another such organization. I highly recommend this rotation as well as the people at MD2B that made it possible.”
