On this episode we hear an attending family physician’s perspective on healthcare from Dr. Deborah Gilboa. Dr. G (as she is known) is a member of Generation X. She and host Rob Oliver became acquainted when she was in medical school at the University of Pittsburgh. During her interview on the Perspectives on Healthcare Podcast she shared some of her insights about resilience. Dr. G is based in Pittsburgh where she started a Federally Qualified Health Center.
Here are 3 things that stood out to me as Dr. Deborah Gilboa shared an attending family physician’s perspective on healthcare:
· A Family Physician can see kids, their parents, their grandparents and sometimes even their great-grandparents
· The difference between a specialist mentality and a generalist mentality
· Medical professionals can improve the quality of healthcare by simply asking patients, “How do you want me to address you?”
