Dr. Laura Kragie: My Philosophy
"I dedicated my life to learning, teaching and researching medicine -started when just a teenager. I sought excellence, or "arete", as the ancient Greeks called it. My path has been unique, winding through laboratories as well as clinics and wards. Nowadays, I am called a "Translational Medicine" doctor because I 'translate' new discoveries in order to bring them to the patient's bedside.
All this constant learning (it is continuous) and my deep experience can be brought to the individual patient, customized to their specific needs and questions. That is my mission now - in this phase of my life - working one on one with those who seek my help to enrich their lives and relieve any suffering."
