During his childhood in Colombia, Dr. Watemberg experienced firsthand being treated by a general physician and was inspired to become a family physician. “Taking care of the family as a whole allows me to understand the dynamic of the illness; seeing the newborns become teenagers, taking care of adults with chronic conditions, and being a part of the decision with the elder patients when the time comes for decisions about home care or nursing home placement,” said Dr. Watemberg.
