DR NIKI'S STORY
When I was 3 years old I announced to my parents " I want to be a Doctor!" Why? Simply, I've always had the desire to help people. Why Geriatrics? I have been blessed to have always had AMAZING elders in my life. They encouraged me to stay in Medical School when I thought of quitting. They would say "Don't quit, I need you to take care of me!" I didn't know much about Geriatrics before Med School, but after taking electives in Geriatrics, I knew that specialty was perfect for me because:
*I am patient and compassionate
*I love to develop relationships with patients/families
*I enjoy finding solutions to complex problems
*I am able to explain difficult topics in easy to understand terms
*I am well equipped to assist with the maintenance/improvement of quality of life for patients and caregivers
*I am adept in providing End of Life Care and guidance for Advanced Care Planning
THE DR NIKI COMMUNITY
Dr Niki hopes to create a community where information is shared that will assist people to live their best, healthiest lives and/or to assist them with the care of their loved ones.
