Capital Digestive Care is thrilled to congratulate Dr. Lauren Halvorson on being named a Top Doctor by Baltimore Magazine! Dr. Halvorson was recognized as a Top Doctor in the latest issue of Baltimore magazine, which serves as a user’s guide to the region, both in print and online. To arrive at these results, thousands of physicians are polled in the region, asking which doctors are the best in more than 100 medical specialties. Only those with the highest number of peer recommendations make the list.
Upon her receipt of this recognition, we asked Dr. Halvorson a few questions about the importance of her role as a medical provider. Here’s what she had to say:
Q: What motivates you as a physician?
A: Being a physician is an extremely rewarding and humbling profession. It is such a privilege to take care of others and to be privy to some of life’s more darker moments. I strive to be sensitive to those moments and make them even a little bit brighter.
Q: What is your approach to patient care?
A: I aim for a collaborative approach to patient care and to formulate individualized plans for a particular patient and their ailments. I also think it is important to have open communication with other members of their healthcare team to have a multi-disciplinary approach.
Q: Why is it important to you to go above and beyond for your patients?
A: Patients seeking care from a gastroenterologist often must discuss uncomfortable symptoms or topics. It is important to me to gain patients’ trust and listen to their concerns attentively to be able to effectively provide quality care. I want my patients to feel heard and understood, so that as a team we can formulate a medical plan to improve their quality of life.
