In a few words please tell us why you like to work at CommUnity Care:
Working at CommUnity Care gives me an opportunity to serve people who need it most; people who have been without regular access to quality health care or are new users of a health care system. Working in an urgent care environment means that I am often one of the first health care providers a new patient may meet as we welcome them into our FQHC. It’s a great feeling to be able to help someone in need, and get them plugged into the many services we offer at CUC. As a primary care provider, it’s empowering to be able to work with patients and see the positive changes in their health status that can be gained with a cooperative relationship, education and regular follow up care. It’s my goal to focus more on preventive care, but when a patient presents with illness, we try and meet that need as well.
