Notable quotes from Ms. George’s interview:
Finding the way forward, we can connect the dots looking back.
Intention is bigger than job stability, it’s bigger than a paycheck. What is your purpose for practicing?
Every healthcare provider is creative, because healthcare is an art.
At the end of the day, everyone wants to be independent.
I think providers are not feeling aligned with where they are at, and also with their own sense of self.
Never lose sight of the bigger picture, of why I’m practicing, and why my patients are there as well.
