Why I Became a Radiologist

I loved all subjects I studied in medical school and I just couldn’t make up my mind so I decided to pursue a field that deals will all facets of medicine…..Radiology. I love the multiple patient interactions I have each day as well as challenging and interesting cases. All the people working at Midwest Radiology have a passion for what they are doing. I can’t imagine working in a better environment.
