Why did you choose to go into the medical field?
Dr. Alexis: I grew up in a hospital environment so I have always been very comfortable around the medical field. I began volunteering at the hospital as a teenager, and found joy with interacting with new people daily. I wanted to help people in a time of need, and I feel like the medical field chose me. I honestly never considered another career for myself.
Dr. Mark: I’ve always enjoyed science and working with people.
What interests you about working for SLMA Comprehensive Health Clinic?
Dr. Alexis: I enjoy working for a multi-specialty group practice because it allows me immediate access to various other subspecialties and allows me to focus on the care of my patients, without the hassles of running an office. I can shift my full focus toward my patients.
Dr. Mark: SLMA is growing fast and has many other doctors available with whom I can brainstorm.
