Q&A with Dr. Kimberly Micus
What led me to Scott & White was its emphasis on family.
Why did you decide to become an Ob/Gyn?
I wanted the opportunity to form long-term relationships with my patients from teenagers through childbearing years, menopause and beyond. I enjoy the diversity that being an Ob/Gyn provides. Being an Ob/Gyn allows me to provide ongoing care to my patients; both in the clinical and hospital settings.
What inspires you about your work as an Ob/Gyn?
I am inspired by what a privilege it is to take care of patients on such a personal level. I enjoy getting to know patients and their families, and being trusted to help guide them through the experience of childbirth.
What are some of the most important things you feel a patient needs above and beyond standard care?
A patient needs to be part of the decision making process and to know she has my attention and concern in her care. She needs to know I will provide her care safely and that my medical judgment will be unbiased.
Why do you feel it is important to build relationships with your patients and give personalized care?
I believe that only by working together; my patients and I are able to solve their most difficult problems. I want my patients to trust that I want the best for their health. This requires the building of long-standing relationships.
