Favorite things about working for Relias?
My favorite thing about working for Relias is that they are a wonderful group of people that care about their providers.
Favorite part about working in the ED?
My favorite thing about working in the emergency department at DCH is that one minute you’re taking care of a trauma patient and the next minute you’re being a family doctor or pediatrician. There’s so much variety in what you get to see and do. A week doesn’t go by that I am surprised by something that comes through our doors.
Most impactful career moment thus far?
It took place on April 27, 2011. That was the day that Tuscaloosa was hit by what was one of the most powerful tornadoes in history. It amazes me how the medical community came together to care for over 600 patients that day. The love, compassion, and care that the medical community gave to the patients that day is the reason we practice medicine.
Best safety/care advice?
If you treat your patients like they are your family, you can never go wrong.
Favorite thing about your community?
My favorite thing about my community is that even though Tuscaloosa is one of the largest cities in our state, it feels like a small town because of the people.
