I stumbled into surgery. When I was a medical student, I loved my surgical rotations but never thought I wanted to be a surgeon. When it came time to apply for residency, however, I didn’t really like any of my other options, so I figured I’d do a surgical internship and then figure out what I really wanted to do. I haven’t looked back since or ever regretted my decision.
Deciding to work at Specialists in General Surgery was one of the best decisions I have ever made (after marrying my husband and having my son!). The people I work with every day all care deeply about the patients, their colleagues, and their families. It truly feels like my “other” family. I know I can trust them to help take care of my patients. My partners are all excellent surgeons, but more importantly, they are all caring and supportive people.
