My First Month as a Medical Director

"People will buy into your dreams if you lead by example and your cause is just.

My philosophy is that I treat my patients the same way I would want a physician to treat my parents. This personal philosophy is very in line with DaVita's philosophy.

DaVita has allowed me to be involved with shaping my clinical team. For example, I selected the facility administrator (FA) for my center, which is incredibly important because they have a big impact on how the centers are run."
