Q: Why did you choose
A: I wanted to have an active roll in patient care.
Q: Tell us how you used best practice medicine to enhance a patient’s life.
A: I feel so fortunate to use the most advanced CT Scanner available on the market to date. I had a patient that was having severe pain in her hip. A CT Scan on our GE VCT Scanner revealed a fracture in her hip that was not seen on plain x-ray. The diagnosis was made and the patient was taken to surgery to have her hip pinned.
Q: What exciting new technology, techniques or procedure(s) have you performed recently?
A: CTA Coronary Angiograms are the newest exam we are performing. It’s an awesome non-invasive study of the coronary arteries.
