Armand Golchin, MD
I also care for critically ill patients before and after cardiac, abdominal or neurological surgeries, as well as perform emergent bedside procedures and manage ventilators. I am trained in critical care echocardiography and enjoy teaching doctors in-training about its utility at the bedside.
I chose to pursue a career in medicine because I find it to be an extremely fascinating and challenging field. Learning about the anatomy and physiology of the human body is very stimulating and motivating. However, the biggest inspiration for becoming a doctor and an intensivist has been the honor to serve others.
It is a privilege to be able to provide care for critically ill patients. Due to the complexity and nature of their illnesses, it requires a team effort to help them get well. It requires collaboration between nurses, consultants, pharmacists, nutritionists, case managers, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and many more. When the team works in synchrony and patients improve, it is incredibly rewarding.
