Communication is the Key

“One of the most satisfying parts of my job is forming longitudinal relationships with patients,” said Shalini Dixit, MD. “My goal is to help them feel heard and understood and to know that someone is invested in their problems. Diagnosing what is causing their symptoms and helping patients feel better and improve their quality of life is really gratifying.”
