Since medical school I have admired the role of the intensivist (a physician who specializes in critical care medicine) as one who creates order from disorder. Problem solving in the midst of a medical emergency takes focus, experience, and skills that I have developed during my clinical training and now impart to the house staff and fellows who rotate through our ICU. In addition to providing state-of-the-art care to the ICU patient, I take great pride in caring for the patient’s family. The uncertainty and complexity of a loved one’s illness is a struggle which I strive to help them navigate with the assistance of our excellent staff.
