Hi, I’m Dr. Michelle Udayamurthy, I’m an Internal Medicine physician at Kelsey-Seybold. Internal Medicine is such a broad field and you have to address a lot of different topics, and it’s like a mystery and you have to kind of figure out what’s going on. And I really like the doctor-patient relationship. I like to get to know people and to help people, and that’s one of the biggest reasons why I became a physician. My favorite part about Kelsey-Seybold is it feels like one big happy family. Everybody’s so friendly when you walk in. I think that the healthcare that’s provided at Kelsey-Seybold is top-notch. Both my mom and sister work here, my mom’s worked here for over 25 years. They both love it here and they have nothing but good things to say about Kelsey so that was definitely a factor. I think definitely the first step is delivering the right kind of knowledge for the patient, making sure they understand the condition, making sure that these are all treatable illnesses, and this is something that we will get through together. MyKelseyOnline is a great way for patients to stay connected with their doctors, and play an active role in their healthcare. They can get results, they can schedule appointments, they can email their doctors and it’s a great tool that patients can use here at Kelsey. There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing a sick patient get better, or a patient set goals and meet those goals, or have a chronic illness under control. And the patient feels satisfaction, then we feel satisfaction for helping that patient achieve those goals.
