Q: What is your best advice for staying well and healthy?
A: Life gives no one a level path on which to travel. There are ups, downs, and ample amounts of chaos in between. The stress of it all can make it tempting to give in and to do what is easy to the exclusion of that which is harder, though more worthwhile. But you must fight against the allure of convenience. You must spend time with the people who you love. You must eat healthy foods. You must sleep well. And you must regularly engage in physical activity that you enjoy and to which you can remain committed.

A: Always be upfront about and prioritize the health concerns that you want to address during your visit. Being forthright about your issues and expectations helps providers dedicate appropriate time and resources to address your concerns and those of other patients.
Q: What are your interests or hobbies outside of work?
A: I enjoy pottery, spending time with my family, and watching superhero and kung fu-themed television shows and movies.
