Lori Platt, MD, an OB/GYN with Methodist Physicians Clinic, feels so lucky to care for the women in her community.

“I see women at some of the happiest times of their lives and also some of the saddest times of their lives,” she said. “Whether it’s caring for a patient during a pregnancy, listening to her current struggles during her annual exam or walking her through a breast cancer diagnosis. I really enjoy being a part of each one of those moments.”

As a breast cancer survivor herself, Dr. Platt is humbled to work with the same people who cared for her during one of the most trying times of her life. She’s proud to work for an organization that puts patients first with a team-based approach.

 “The Meaning of Care is when I watch my partner hold the hands of a patient who is leaning over for a spinal because she’s scared and nervous about her C-section. It’s watching one of my labor and delivery nurses stay past her shift to deliver a baby – even though she has kids of her own to go home – because she wants to watch that patient develop her new family. The Meaning of Care is something you can’t put into words, but I experience it every day when I come to work.”
