“I am happy to be part of a team where every member's voice is heard, where we take time to evaluate how we can improve our company and offices through regular meetings, and where we do our best to maintain a positive attitude throughout the day. “

"From a resident's standpoint, I like that with all our doctors involved, I have such a wealth of knowledge and experience available, which creates a diverse learning environment.
