Owner and Cofounder of Holistic Hyperbarics Wellness Clinic

ALEXANDRA WILLIAMS

My whole professional career has been a singular boundless pursuit in healing people. I've worn many hats in healthcare, from surgical recovery to labor and delivery to emergency care on an ambulance. I was always considered an oddball because of the level of care I tried to give to my patients. To most, my actions seemed above and beyond what they understood their responsibilities were, to me they felt like baseline care. In every interaction with my patients, I always asked myself  'What more can I do to make this person whole'. I made the time to link their medical history with their personal history, listen to underline worries, directed them to other resources, and took the time to explain all their options.  Earlier in my career as an EMT, I quickly realized the medical system is built around avoiding that mindset. We are trained to treat the acute problem and send them on their way. The relationship between caregiver and patient by design was/is very transactional. In my opinion, that gap in whole-person care is where we loose as healthcare providers.asy. - OFFICIAL HUMAN TOUCH BLOG
