We asked how they connect with patients and stay fueled and what tools of the trade are exciting for 2022.

Staying fueled: 

Almonds are my go-to breakfast or snack! While this might not be the healthiest choice, if I need a pick-me-up, I love a non-fat latte in the morning or a Diet Coke in the afternoon.

Meeting New patients:

I love getting to know my patients, and the conversation certainly varies based on their personalities. I generally start out, though, by asking where they're from and asking them to tell me a bit about themselves and their lifestyles like their significant other, kids, and pets. This helps me get to know them and build a relationship of trust but it also helps me understand my patient's lifestyle so I can create a treatment plan that will fit into their life.

New in 2022:

The pandemic has put new technologies and tools on the backburner for aspects of healthcare that aren't COVID-19-related, but I'm looking forward to getting the progress moving again and attending more conferences and educational events this year. I'm excited to see what's on the horizon skin tightening and skin rejuvenation and to learn more about continued medicine and laser technology for skin issues. I'm always trying new and exciting things for hair restoration as well, so I hope to find even more treatment options to help my patients in the year ahead.

Staying fueled:

Breakfast: boiled eggs with a piece of cheese and a few almonds. Late morning snack: a handful of nuts, cup of coffee with MCT oil or grass-fed butter, fruit. Late afternoon pick me up: a shake, hummus, nuts.

Meeting New patients:

We chat and I ask when was the last time when you felt good? How is your illness impacting your life and your energy? What do you do to ‘’stop’’ your brain and relax even for a second?

New in 2022:

I am excited about a truly holistic approach to skin health! Naturally enhancing your beauty, rehabbing your skin from within by balancing hormones, vitamins, gut-liver health and using intelligent, noninvasive yet powerful facial devices is the way to go!
