Personal statement from Dr. Pukis
"Upon entering medical school, I was eager to explore the options that existed in medicine, but it was Internal Medicine that attracted me most. With its diversity and complexity of medical cases, with it combining many facets of medicine and stretching one's analytic problem solving skills to their limits, I felt Internal Medicine offered precisely the type of challenge I was seeking.
I truly enjoy spending my time working with people. It is a reason I am in the field of medicine in the first place. I believe a physician should leave a patient more secure, more informed, more confident in the quality of their health care and whenever possible more comfortable with their current state of health. It amazes me to feel that soon a patient rests reassured. Reassured not by promises of perfection, but by the fact of being with someone he trusts, someone who he knows truly cares.
I graduated at the top of my class from Kaunas University of Medicine in Lithuania which became a proud member of Europe Union in 2004. My medical school training was followed by Internal Medicine residency training at one of the top Cleveland Clinic Hospitals in the state of Ohio.
Miracles seem to happen each day in the hospital. However, without the advancement of medical knowledge through research, many medical triumphs may not be realized. I have had a very rewarding opportunity to do research in the field of Histology, Immunology, Cardiology, Radiology and Surgery.
I have gratitude for ordinary things and I enjoy life on a daily basis. Reflecting this gratitude to medicine, I view each patient as a valuable lesson, both medically and personally. This constant learning experience is my main motivation.
I have passion for medicine and in addition to providing care for acute and chronic conditions I always try to focus on a patient as a whole and promoting wellness is one of the key aspects of our practice and Your general well-being. I am specializing in diagnosis and treatment of most adult medical problems. Heart disease, high blood pressure, arthritis, kidney trouble, diabetes, allergies and skin conditions are some of the many concerns of the practice.
I believe my sense of compassion, the patience to listen, dedication, as well as my strong medical knowledge base are my greatest assets. What I can offer you is a physician who is highly motivated, responsible, and an enthusiastic person, who is committed to excellence, intelligence, hard work and common sense. I believe undoubtedly that with my commitment to You and the field of medicine we could certainly make a positive contribution to each others life and Your health. Thank you. "
