Veronica Rodriguez MD is a General Physician from Miami. She is currently pursuing her master's degree in Public Health at the University of Miami before she starts residency. As a blogger who loves to stay active, Veronica enjoys working on her health blog and YouTube channel to promote healthy lifestyle choices. In her free time she loves traveling, fashion, dancing, and spending time outdoors and with her family.
In her own words,
"I love talking to patients and hearing about their symptoms but also their emotions. I don't think a patient is just a disease. I see them as a person that is looking to feel better, and I'm interested in their life. Sometimes their lives are the root cause of many issues including physical. I also think giving good information at a good pace improves compliance and motivation to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
My favorite thing about my career in medicine is being in a position to help people know the benefits of healthy habits and hopefully prevent disease before it starts. The biggest challenge for me has been leaving home for medical school and having to learn to cope quickly with the separation so I could do what I love most: be a doctor and help people."
