I wasn't proud to do screenings. It was necessary, and it was effective, but it wasn't what I dreamed of when I signed up to become a doctor.
On the contrary, sharing the path to better health is incredibly rewarding! I am proud to be the doctor who educates my community! People's eyes light up during talks and they come up and thank me afterward. People who come in as patients bring us gifts and refer in their family and friends. I'll never forget how one woman stopped me and started crying as she shared that my talk, "How to Eliminate Stress & Take Control of Your Life," had been the inflection point that caused her to go back to college. Some of the people in the audience go to other chiropractors as a result of my talks, and I'm OK with that! It's the right thing to do and I'm proud to be the one doing it!
Someone needs to educate our society on how to win with their health. It might as well be you!
