Quote

Why did you become a doctor?

I have always been fascinated by the capability of scientific discovery to influence daily life, by the human body and its abilities, and by the use of mathematics to solve real world issues. The art of form follows function, the mechanical properties, and the biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system in the context of orthopaedics and adult reconstruction appealed to me and allowed me to combine my interests in medicine and engineering. The demand for musculoskeletal care will continue to grow for many years, and we are in need of solutions to affordably and effectively provide care. In the end, I felt that medicine, particularly, orthopaedics was one area in which I could add value, help people, and enjoy doing it along the way.

Office personnel was great and I liked Dr Rothermel. Had to wait quite a while to be called to the back once I checked in. But, hopefully he was taking his time with another patient. ?

Put the paper health check form online. 3 pages of conditions was too much to check off on paper. If it were online on my Portal, I could have completed the forms before I arrived at the office.

The only thing that needs improving is the ability to schedule surgeries. Unfortunately, COVID cases remain high and the facility is unable to perform elective surgeries.

I think the doctors and Clinics could spend more time on studying. The people's records, or patient records before they have their appointment.
