I appreciate the unique approach of neuroscience at SSM Health. In my previous experiences, the focus was always on diagnosing the issue at hand, but here we take it a step further by providing direct solutions to our patients' problems. What I love most about being a part of the SSM neuroscience team is the emphasis on development and innovation. It's truly fulfilling knowing we're not only helping people, but doing so in the most effective and efficient way possible.
