Tahnee loves family practice for the vast amount of knowledge the specialty entails. She also serves as Adjunct Professor for NYIT’s Physician Assistant Program in Old Westbury, where she teaches Family Medicine to Physician Assistant students. As a family clinician, not only are you the first line for your patients, you are able to integrate all aspects of a patient’s medical care, viewing them together and not just in isolation. She also enjoys forming relationships with her patients, as well as the continuity of care that family medicine provides. In her spare time, Tahnee enjoys drawing, painting, and spending time with her family.
“I don’t think I could have picked a better field. I love practicing medicine and find this specialty, in particular, to be very rewarding. One of the most important features of the patient-clinician relationship is to ensure that the patient feels as if they are part of their treatment plan. By educating patients on their illnesses, they are provided with the tools needed to make the most appropriate decisions in managing their own health.”
