I also through helping such a vast number of individuals, I was also able to form an environment that promotes a sense of security and trust that allows the patient to open up so the caregivers can provide the proper care and information to promote their health. The clinic has also allowed me to become an individual who is unafraid to take initiative to offer help to other people and same time respect their privacy.
