1.State your name, occupation, and a brief description of your occupation.Dr. Velasco: My name is Dr. Luz Velasco. I am a doctor at Kaiser Permanente in the familypractice department. I mainly provide preventative care such as, screenings, pelvic exams, breastexams, vaccinations, glucose monitoring, and educating patients on the topics that they are athigh risk for.2.How do you feel you did as a professional communicator?Dr. Velasco: Well, I hope so. In the health care community, if you can’t appropriatelycommunicate concerns and care with your patient it could be the difference between life anddeath or living a normal life versus an impaired life. It is not just patients that we need toeffectively communicate with but, also the other members of the medical office. If. I can’tcommunicate to the other staff members about what I need to happen for a patient it can open awhole can of worms that could harm the patient.3.Are there any areas of your communication skills that you need to work on improving?
