Dr. Marcos Kornstein – Advanced Women’s OB/GYN Associates


(lively music) – I am Dr. Kornstein.
I’m an OB/GYN physician. I work in Advanced Women’s OB/GYN which is a group here in Loxahatchee. We serve the community here
as well as in West Palm Beach. I went to medical school in Argentina and then I came for my training here in the US to New York City and I’ve been practicing
for over 35 years. The first thing that I do when the patient comes in is I interview them. Trust is very important so
we need to establish a trust between the patient and myself, and after I find out what
seems to be the problem, then we take it to the examining room and we do the examination,
whether it is a pap smear, or a biopsy, or whatever is needed. The most important part
is the communication. Luckily I’m bilingual, so many patients are having trouble with the language, and it’s also important that they have someone with a good sense of humor. I try to keep this in a very light way. I think that a patient
feels at ease with us. I think all the staff
is very compassionate. We try to help the
patient as much as we can. We are close to the hospital. We can get all the auxiliary
services on quickly. One of the reasons that I
went into medicine is because when I was a kid, my uncle was
a physician, took me with him to see the patients in
their homes, home visits, and that’s when I learned the interaction between physician and patient, that it was very, very important for me. And I learned a lot from them and I see the gratitude
to the care that they get. And I’m very grateful to
that because I learn a lot from my patients, they are
very, very rewarding for me, and I think that I don’t
see my career as a job because it’s essentially an interaction between getting patients better for good health and with good results. (lively music)
