How I fell in love with emergency medicine: I love emergency medicine due to the variety of problems that we see and treat. Additionally, not knowing what is going to walk through the door next always keeps it interesting. I also work in sports medicine and love being able to work with active patients who are working on getting back to normal daily activities.
