Just kidding about that last one. But first, the intro.
Hey guys, I am so excited to finally be here talking to you. This has been a dream of mine and what an opportunity I have to talk with people all over healthcare about talking. The premise of this show is That aside from provider patient communication, team based communication is key to effective patient care.
First, a little bit about me. I am a board certified emergency physician currently practicing in western New York. Have to say go Bills, but I am a Giants fan at heart. I was born and raised in New York City. I completed my undergraduate work at the State University of New York College at Geneseo followed by medical school at the New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine.
During college and early medical school, I worked as an EMT and interior firefighter for both volunteer and private fire departments and ambulance companies. I completed my emergency medicine residency training at Upstate University Hospital in Syracuse, New York. And following that, move to Chicago with my wonderful, beautiful wife Alysia, while she completed her sub specialty training in Rheumatology.
While in Chicago, I worked at multiple facilities from small critical access hospitals to large tertiary care centers and everything in between. During that time, I was fortunate to meet all sorts of wonderful people in many different roles. Right before leaving Chicago, one of our awesome security guards got me a farewell gift. When I asked him why he did that. He said, because you talk to me like a person doc. I was shocked at that statement. It really resonated with me. I asked him, do others not? He said, You would be surprised.
I started thinking about the different interactions we have every day. This is what started my interest in the podcast and talking to people across all of healthcare. Multiple research studies have linked improved provider patient communication with improved outcomes, patient satisfaction, adherence to treatment plan, etc. It is my sincere belief that improved communication at all levels of the team will trickle down And allow us to provide the best patient care.
This show will interview people across the entire healthcare continuum from security and clerical staff to top CEOs and everyone in between. Together we will be exploring what works, what doesn’t. barriers, tips and tricks, and much more. Along the way, you may have to listen to some of my bad jokes. Sorry about that. Who is this show for? In short, it is for everyone. Whether you are a patient, physician, nurse, radiology technician, or anyone else. in some capacity healthcare touches all people at some point of their lives.
