Why are you passionate about the Clinic?
I feel privileged to be able to work at CSC because it is an opportunity to practice medicine in an ideal environment. CSC is a place where the staff functions more like a family than co-workers and we are able to help some of the most wonderful patients and families. I am passionate about what CSC does because the combination of a close-knit community with cutting-edge technology and genetic research makes it a place for the best possible outcomes for patients of all varieties. I am excited about the work CSC is doing, and even more excited about what is to come.
