Meet the Provider

What led you to become a provider or choose your focus of medicine?
I have always loved taking care of people. My father always said, “Sandie would prefer a first-aid kit over a doll for a present anytime.”

What about your line of work do you find most rewarding and why?
The time I am able to spend getting to know my patients.

How would a patient describe you?
How I like to bring my personal experience to help them understand what they are going through. I find this builds a strong rapport.

What’s your proudest moment as a provider?
Any day I can make a change in someone’s life.

In your opinion, what’s the most important factor in a provider-patient relationship?
Time, understanding and truthfulness about the situation.

What can a patient expect when they have you as a provider?
Communication – taking the time to actually listen and truly hear what the person is saying. Also there is nothing like the human touch, be it a pat on the back or a sincere hug.

What do you find most encouraging about the work you do?
That there are truly wonderful people with a strong faith in God who are taking care of our elderly.

What are your top priorities with every patient you see?
1) Getting to know them as a person.
2) Considering and caring for their family.
3) Taking the time to truly listen.

Describe one of the top ways you ensure each patient receives the quality, personal health care he/she deserves.
I take the time to listen - even if it takes a long time. As practitioners we can miss the true issue if all we do is just read the records.
