Why Michael Loves Working in O&P
From a very young age, I was interested in the medical field and in helping make a positive impact on people’s lives. My prosthetic and orthotic career gives me this opportunity every day. My goal is to connect with the patients I have the pleasure of meeting, and ultimately help them achieve their goals. My patient’s goals are what motivate me to become a better clinician. I love this career because it gives me the opportunity to utilize a unique skill set that results in instant gratification.
