This month, the Advisory Board members share their journeys and words of wisdom for a rewarding career.
Total Healthcare – Non-Surgical Joint and Spine Care
Dr. Tara Frix had no doubts about where her career was headed. “I always wanted to be a doctor,” she says. But she always knew that a patient’s health can’t just rely on one provider. “Early on, I was drawn to the multidisciplinary approach of having sports medicine doctors, non-surgical orthopedists, chiropractors and physiotherapists that all have the same goal for the patient.”
“If you work hard and work smart, it will eventually pay off. Persistence is the key to achieving anything you want. Whether it’s financial, career, personal or health goals, keep at it, keep going, keep moving forward – you will eventually look around and realize you are there! I see patients that do it all of the time. If they stick to their treatment plan and do their exercises, they eventually get back to living a pain-free life because they didn’t give up.”
Today, she’s living her vision at Total HealthCare, helping patients eliminate joint pain without relying on the all-too-common cortisone injections and joint replacements. “I love giving patients their lives back and getting them active again,” she says.
