What do you do in your spare time?
I’m actually something of a thrill-seeker whenever I have some spare time away from the office. I really enjoy skydiving and scuba diving, and any time I go on vacation I try to do one or the other. Also, I’ve been working on my pilot’s license and hope to have the requisite flight hours completed soon.
What’s your favorite film?
I’ll watch just about any film Jack Nicholson is in, and I loved his portrayal of Melvin Udall, his character in As Good As It Gets.
What can you look forward to in the future?
Psychiatry can be a challenging field at times, but I can’t imagine any responsibility that is more rewarding. I look forward to taking on new challenges in the future and continuing to help patients address their health concerns in the most compassionate way possible.
What’s your favorite thing about working in your industry?
My absolute favorite thing about working in the field of psychiatry is the opportunity to help people who have encountered some type of difficult circumstance requiring expert assistance. I truly enjoy those moments in which an epiphany occurs and helps a patient make significant progress in a relatively short period of time.
What’s your biggest pet peeve?
There’s no room for mediocrity in psychiatric care, so I am often troubled to learn that some patients have difficulty finding exceptional care from a doctor who understands the seriousness of their professional responsibilities. The overwhelming majority of doctors offer care to their patients according to the absolutely highest standard, but it is nonetheless a significant peeve of mine that some physicians fail to live up to these critical standards.
