No Patient Experience Reviews – Why Not?

Gundersen Health System requires a minimum of 30 completed patient surveys in a 12-month period for each clinician before posting a clinician’s rating. Industry best practice is clear that more data provides a more accurate picture of the patient experience.

Personal Interests

Being able to help people in need and make significant impact in someone's life lured me to be a physician. My experiences after completing medical school made it clear to me that being able to take care of a person with cancer was the most gratifying experience one can have as physician so, I joined the field of hematology/oncology. I feel blessed to have joined Gundersen as the work environment is good and all team members are very motivated to provide best patient care. I love to spend time with my patients to know them in depth which helps me to serve them the best. Apart from my work, I have multiple hobbies including photography, cooking, gardening and traveling.
