I enjoy many aspects of being a physician assistant, but I find the most fulfillment in being an integral part of the process through which our patients are able to improve their quality of life. In our practice we deal with a several different disease processes that can be serious or debilitating, and for the most part, we have the capabilities to help our patients recover or greatly improve to the point where they can feel normal again.
In order to achieve the best possible outcomes, good communication is essential. I first need to properly understand the patient’s situation and their complaints so we can determine a proper diagnosis and course of action. It’s also important to then develop a treatment plan along with the patient that will best suit his or her particular situation and this can only occur with good discourse. And finally, proper follow-up, whether by phone, email or in-person, is crucial to ensure healthy outcomes. If I can help a patient feel better and they expresses gratitude for my help in their situation, it makes all the hard work and long hours worth it.
Aside from work, I spend most of my free time with my four young children and lovely wife. We like to hike, travel, read, play sports and stay fit. Liz and I especially enjoy DIY projects around the house and yard. I’m also involved in some humanitarian charitable work that helps children abroad. I speak English, Spanish fluently and very basic Russian.
A provider's patient satisfaction rating is determined by patient responses to questions from the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) survey, administered by NRC Health.
Patients today have more choices than ever, including where, how and from whom they get care. That's why Revere Health believes it's important to provide access to transparent information, empowering our patients to make knowledgable decisions about their healthcare.
CAHPS surveys are funded and overseen by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) within the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
Patients receive the nine-question survey via email or phone call, and we publish provider ratings on Revere Health's website once he or she has at least 30 completed surveys.
