Her Story

Smiles. Laughter. Tears. Groans. Hugs. Hope.
Poetry and Medicine.

“So how does it really feel to be handed someone’s life…to fight for that life…only to lose the very thing you were aiming to save…?”

Over the last couple of years, I have often encountered these sorts of questions… questions regarding my days and nights living and working as a physician. I had initially created this blog as a way to share my experiences through a medium that I felt could only begin to do this complex profession and all of its players some degree of justice. It was my way of capturing, assimilating, and articulating some of my feelings… the moments of joy, contentment, frustration, guilt, loss, and acceptance…that I have experienced since my introduction into the whirlwind realm that is the art of medicine and patient care. 

However, over time, Phoebe, MD has evolved to become less a simple portrait of the days spent as a caregiver, and more simply a reflection of all that lies beyond the white coat—the tears and chuckles, fears and hopes of life—in other words…a beating, human heart.

Through its evolution, Phoebe, MD now includes health-related articles to provide practical information on pertinent health topics in a way that I felt would benefit the readers of this blog…the least I could do for such a wonderful community. 

So with that said, welcome to Phoebe, MD! Thank you for visiting, and I do hope you enjoy your stay. 

With love,
Phoebe (aka ‘PuppyDoc’)

  1. Still coming back for a peek and a read!

    Btw I checked out your youtube channel. Amazing! I’ve never seen a channel that read out poetry! I wish you’d do more.

    Would you mind if I take the audio from one of those videos and laid it out with music or something?

    Keep writing, living and rocking Phoebe!
