Being a physician is about more than medicine for Dr. Paige Rackliffe. “It’s about building lasting relationships with patients and their families,” she says. Those with seniors are especially rewarding for her. “Each senior has a story to tell and experience they can pass on to others,” she adds.
Dr. Rackliffe has also always loved medical research and developing new ways to optimize patient outcomes. She has even traveled to Africa to treat various tribes—an experience that was paramount in her growth as a physician. “It proved my life goal is to take care of those in need,” Dr. Rackliffe adds. Away from work, however, nothing beats quality time with her family and embarking on new adventures.
