Personal Summary Inspiration

Writer’s block isn’t something that only affects authors! If you’re looking for inspiration on how you can spruce up your personal summary or if you’d like to simply personalize and replace your current one, you’ve come to the right place.

  • What you do for fun

Take a look at some actual summaries from other specialists on Direct Health:

Family Medicine
I’m a board-certified family medicine physician serving men, women, and children at My Practice in Irving, Texas. Born in Puerto Rico, I grew up interested in medicine and helping others. I looked up to my dad, Dr. Angel Luis López Ruiz, a well-established surgeon in Puerto Rico. At a young age, I realized that my vocation was to become a physician. My childhood brimmed with trips to the hospital where I would accompany and observe my dad at work. Since my early years, I’ve found the field of medicine riveting and I believe the experiences taught by my father built the framework and principles of methodical, empathetic, and efficient care. My primary goal is to enhance patient wellness overall. Fluent in both English and Spanish, I can effectively communicate with a diverse group of patients.

Family Medicine
Hi!! I am here to help with the treatment and consultation of common ailments, coughs, sore throats, rashes, infections and skin diseases that can be treated over virtual media. I am able to call in medications and antibiotics if needed to your local pharmacy for you to keep you from having to go in the office. I would be happy to give my professional medical opinion on other matters or help direct you to a provider or my office if needing further care or assistance with this matter. I also spend a lot of time reading on depression, anxiety and plant-based nutritional counseling to help promote weight loss, medication reduction/elimination, and disease eradication.  I will do my best to help you as much as I can!

Hi – This is Dr. Carlson and welcome to my practice! I’m so glad you are here. Please let me tell you a little bit about myself. I believe communication is incredibly important to good health. Gynecology should be easy to understand, not something shrouded in secrecy. I welcome questions and want to help you understand your body. Please know that if I believe you need an exam, I will be honest and tell you. I practiced Medical Gynecology at Mayo Clinic in Florida from 2012 until 2016 and I have cared for thousands of women from all over the world. As a specialist there, I focused my practice on diagnosing problems and helping women avoid surgery if at all possible. While at Mayo, I also enjoyed sharing my knowledge with patients and with other doctors. Upon retiring from Mayo Clinic, I have continued to enjoy caring for women in my private practice, which is now entirely online. Prior to joining Mayo Clinic, I practiced high-risk obstetrics and gynecologic surgery in New England. I am Board Certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

She was chosen to be Chief Resident at Stanford University and has served as clinical assistant professor at New York University and University of California, Irvine.

I have been working in pediatrics for over 10 years and have found that children and adolescents are as unique as their disease processes! I started my career with five years of pediatric ICU experience and now currently work as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner in urgent care, hospital, and primary care settings in Southeast Texas. My primary treatment interests are general pediatric health, pediatric surgery and recovery, childhood obesity, and acute illnesses. Here are few examples: – cough or congestion – sore throat – rashes – ear aches – minor injuries and burns – skin infections – diarrhea – vomiting or abdominal pain – post-operative issues – nutrition- newborn and infant feeding and questions – fussiness When we aren’t busy chasing after our own two kids, my husband and I love to travel, enjoy great food, and spend time at the beach! 

I am a compassionate classically trained mature and well-finished counselor, rated with “superb” clinical judgment, developed in over 15 years of practice and study at two different medical schools. I manage complex cases very well. I am able to help my clients understand their problems by having normal, human conversations with them. By listening closely to them, I am able to guide them to solutions that work for them. By being sensitive to them and caring about them, we are able to identify underlying causes that provide long-term solutions.
