What is you favorite pastime outside of the emergency department?
I enjoy running and biking.
Who gave you your best career advice? What was it?
An attending at Jefferson encouraged me to pace myself in order to avoid burnout.
What's the most exciting thing on the horizon? Personal or Professional.
We are in the process of building a brand new ED at Inova Mount Vernon Hospital.
If you were just starting your residency now, what would you do differently?
I would focus on business related ventures, as well as focusing more on patient satisfaction.
How will things change in emergency medicine during the next decade?
I think there will continue to be a shortage of good ED trained providers, so there will be even higher use of APPs. I feel telemedicine use will greatly expand.
Most awkward encounter with a patient.
Always around the rectal foreign body.
