Dr. Purdy, how did you move from a career as a professional pianist to medicine? What inspired you to take this step?
Moving from a career as a professional pianist to medicine was a transformative journey for me. Music has always been a passion of mine, but I felt a calling to make a difference in people's lives in a more direct and profound way. I was inspired by the healing power of medicine and the opportunity to provide care and support to those in need. It was a decision driven by a desire to serve others and make a meaningful impact on their well-being.

I believe in the importance of maintaining a healthy work-life balance, which requires careful prioritization and effective time management. It's about finding harmony and being present in each aspect of my life when needed.
