It has been a busy month for me, but I am relieved to finally have a plan in place. I will begin working with Baptist on September 30th with the plan of seeing patients beginning October. We are working quickly to get everything in place so that I can get started seeing patients again. I will post contact information as soon as we get my schedule set up!
Again, thanks to my patients for being so encouraging and supportive as I took the time to carefully evaluate the many job opportunities I was presented this last month. Thank you to the physicians, lawyers, and business owners that gave me wise counsel as I evaluated each opportunity. I ultimately chose the option that was best for me, my family, and my patients and would allow me to continue to practice internal medicine in Madison.
Thank you for your prayers during this unexpected transition. I continue to grow during this time and I have come to enjoy the bits of quiet stillness gifted to me these few weeks. As I stated in my previous post, I have grown as a person, as a mother, as a wife, as a believer in Christ, as a servant, as a physician, as a friend, and as a leader in my community and in healthcare. I have learned so much about myself and who I am apart from medicine, but also within the medical community. The 6 weeks away from my job have taught me that physician is not my identity, but that my identity is in Christ. Physician is my role. I am enough and I am satisfied in Him and it does not matter whether I am employed or not. I look forward to getting started at Baptist in Madison, with new perspective and renewed energy. See y’all soon!
