Steve and I have now officially been #physicians for 1 year. Holy smokes 😱 ! Excited to celebrate this bachelor in Austin this weekend! • For all the graduates this weekend making the leap to MD, a full hearted way to go 🙌🏼. You’ve successfully achieved one of the hardest things that we humans do, and are about to embark on the hardest thing we humans do, #residency. You have a special year ahead of you, but make sure to take some time this summer to celebrate your amazing achievement - you deserve it. Well done and congrats 👏🏼👏🏼 ! #graduation2018
If you are going to do anything meaningful in life you have to get excited! You especially have to be a little goofy and pretend you don’t want to poke your eyes out when dealing with GAM, LASSO, and neural network statistical models #nerdalert 🤓! Passion, and my guru statistician Audrey, makes this work possible. Bravo 👏🏼 to the other presenters, the research and progress within the field is mind-bending and I’m grateful for finally being able to make it to the #AUA meeting.
Guys, yeah all you 👱🏼♂️’s out there, I want you to go home tonight and examine your prized jewels 🥜. Today’s the last day of #TesticularCancer awareness month, and I want you to know what to look for downstairs. Any lump, heaviness, or fluid on or surrounding the testicle may be a sign of testicular cancer. Self examinations are key, and should be done roughly once a month throughout life as testes cancer can happen at any age. * Most commonly occurring in young men ages 15-34, testicular cancer has one of the best survivals if caught early. Greater than 95% of men will be cured of testicular cancer if found and treated early. So examine often, catch it early, and don’t let testicular cancer go undetected! Tag someone who needs to check their #balls! #prevention #beatcancer

Committing this #EarthDay to going meatless in June 😱. A major underpinning of my values, even my decision to go into medicine, is that we are all connected, on a deep fundamental level, the earth included. I’m convinced that our industrial ag system destroys this beautiful 🌏 we have, and I’m totes not okay with that. So all you vegans out there, I’m now taking any and all tips for my upcoming challenge. #gogreen #veganchallenge #donthatemeditate

Spring 🌸 is finally here in NYC! With my first weekend off in 9 weeks 🙀 taking full advantage of the gorgeous weather. But first, stopping to get some much needed acupuncture 📍 by the great Bill James at Gotham City acupuncture. Yoga has helped, but #acupuncture has been the one thing that has totally eliminated my back pain from an injury two years ago. I’m not sure where I’d be without it #grateful. As someone who grew up with a naturopathic father and allopathic mother, I always found value in complimentary medicine. What non-traditional practices do you find helpful in healing and patient care?? #reiki ? #salsadancing 💃🏼 #meditation ?? Comment below and see the diversity of methods we available for wellness! ⬇️
I f*cking hate Cancer. Of all the diseases, cancer is an especially ugly one. Tiny, microscopic cells, altered from a variety of causes, can take over your body in a blink. Before you know it, normal processes like breathing, eating, peeing, and walking become mountainous tasks. Pain can often put people into delirium. A large part of my day today was dealing with two of the worst culprits, lung and bladder cancer - with two of my patients likely at the end of their battle with this terrible disease. Nothing we’ve done has stopped the spread of disease to their brain, bones, or lymphatics. It’s crushing to see these kind individuals now shells of the people I first met 6 months ago. Sometimes you have no choice but to throw in the towel and blow off some steam at 10pm on a Friday. Wake up, ready to fight another day. If you or someone you know has blood in the urine, a smoking history and respiratory symptoms, or you have a new strange testicular mass, go see a doctor to make sure it’s nothing serious. #earlydetection #awareness #beatcancer
Love yourself and those around you. Love the ones who need it most. Love those you don’t know. The haters. The instigators. Love the world you have. Love possibility. Chance. Adventure. Love hardship. Pain. Growth. Be the love you wish to receive. — Happy Valentine’s Day to the one who brings me all the love! Tag someone you love! ❤️👋🏼 @misslaurengibbs #belove #valentine #yougetwhatyougive
Every achievement requires optimism. The belief that something can succeed in future. Without optimism we are left in the tilt of uncertainty and chance. The universe has a funny way of manifesting what you intend or put your energy into. So be optimistic, create what you desire! 🔮 #manifest — Finally back home after an incredible couple weeks. Feeling rejuvenated with a full plate today of manuscript writing and preparing for the week ahead! 🤓📄 #backhome
Choose the life you want, because you have choice. Life is all about millions of momentary choices 🤔. The more conscious and active we are in making those choices the happier and healthier we become. Whatever you choose can be right, so long as it’s within the context of nourishing your mind, body, and soul. So do I hit that extra snooze today, or wake up and get after it? 💭🏃🏼♂️ #doctor #choice #health
