Start Spreading the News…
I am thrilled to announce the next phase in my journey as a Physician. After 3 years in Arizona, I am returning to NYC and will be practicing at NYU Langone Medical Center’s Internal Medicine Associates.
I have thoroughly enjoyed living in Arizona – it was a wonderful experience for my family, and I have grown as a physician. I learned new skills, encountered diagnoses that I don’t often see on the East Coast and saw a two health care system merge and deploy a new Electronic Health Record system. All changes that helped me see the challenges that both physicians and patients face in the coming years.
As I shared the news with my colleagues and patients in Arizona, the response was usually “sad for me, happy for you” and jokes about getting out of 119 degree summer days. I am grateful for the support I have received!
Since I trained and had been affiliated with NYU since graduating from medical school, the news of my return has been like coming home – incredible enthusiasm from colleagues and former patients alike. A response that again makes me feel grateful for the relationships I have built over the years – and reminds me of why I chose Internal Medicine as a career.
So I will say goodbye to excellent Southwest fare (best guacamole ever), and hello to Atlantic Ocean sushi, real bagels and pizza! And look forward to NYC saying “AAHH”
Wishing health and happiness to all, and to more blogging now that my summer of transition is coming to a close.
