Posted on Nov 3, 2020 in Announcements | 0 comments

Dr. Kury is the epitome of a good physician; she is kind, caring, calm and professional. Dr. Kury is respected by everyone who works with her. She treats everyone around her with respect and takes time to listen to what they have to say. She also shares critical feedback with poise and without judgement.

As a member of the healthcare team, I am proud to be working side by side with her. Her practice is based on kindness, intellectual understanding of best practices and logical reasoning. She is well respected because she knows how to command respect whether it’s during a critical care meeting discussion or during rounds or at the bedside, talking to patients. Dr. Kury talks to her patients with compassion and explains the disease processes and therapies in a way they can understand. She is inclusive in care planning and soliciting best practices from other members of the healthcare team. She openly engages and patiently educates staff about clinical practice to improve patient care.

Dr. Kury encourages active participation of the health care team. She actively listens to them and makes them feel comfortable to voice out their ideas and opinions. Dr. Kury always makes us an equally important part of the team; a true hummingbird, the symbolism of healers and bringers of love, good luck and joy. It’s always a pleasure to work with you.
