Jessica Haladyna: "My White Coat Means"


Each time I put on my white coat, I make a conscious commitment to go beyond 100% for everyone who seeks my help. I understand wholeheartedly that a patient is more than meets the eye. I will see someone’s mother or father, brother or sister, someone’s precious child, and someone’s best friend. Bearing the responsibility and honor of this white coat, I will embody compassion and tenacity to ensure not only physical, but emotional and spiritual recovery for my patients. Regardless of the long hours and the demanding schedule that accompanies being a physician, I will strive to serve every person with 110% of my attention, knowledge, care, and love. Always.
