“I love meeting people from all walks of life.”
Dr. Megan Curtis says that she always wanted to be a primary care physician. “My interest in preventative care led me into family medicine. I enjoy family medicine because it allows me to teach people about health and caring for themselves right from the start in childhood and throughout a patient’s life,” she explains. “I really enjoy the diversity of family medicine, including pediatric care, women’s health, addiction medicine and sports medicine.” Dr. Curtis loves caring for families and finds each family member’s care is improved when she is able to better understand the home environment, family history, and the complex relationships between her patients.
Dr. Curtis says that one of the most enjoyable aspects of her job is getting to know her patients. “I love meeting people from all walks of life and different backgrounds and learning about their experiences. I don’t think I’ve ever met a patient that didn’t teach me something about life or about health.”
Dr. Curtis says that one of the more difficult things doctors try to accomplish in primary care is helping patients to change their behavior. “That’s something I am always trying to work on. It’s fairly easy to treat someone with strep throat, but it gets more complicated when you have to help someone who wants to lose weight or better manage their diabetes,” she explains. “That’s why listening to the patient’s needs and setting goals is so important – and then figuring out how we can meet in the middle and come up with a care plan that is both realistic and gives us the best chance at success.”
One of the reasons Dr. Curtis decided to come to Reliant is because she enjoys the philosophy and approach to care here. “I like the fact that Reliant prioritizes primary care and integrates primary care with other services that patients need like behavioral health and addiction medicine. Plus, I think the team-based approach to care we have here really benefits the patient.”
When she is not busy helping patients Dr. Curtis enjoys spending time with her husband Seth (who is also a physician at Reliant) and their golden retriever. She and her husband also recently welcomed their first child into the family. Dr. Curtis enjoys being active and loves to swim and hike. She and her husband also love to cook and enjoy trying new restaurants and cuisines.
