Amrit Dockery, D.O., specializes in family medicine and is fluent in speaking English, Punjabi, Hindi and Urdu. “I chose family medicine because it allows me to see patients of all kinds – young, old, sick, healthy, male, female, etc. in all walks of life. This also allows me to build a potential long-term therapeutic relationship with patients, which I believe is an important foundation to providing successful medical care,” she said.
Dr. Dockery makes an effort to go beyond the walls of her office to build relationships with patients. She listens to her patients and tries to get to know them beyond what their medical problems are. “I constantly remind myself that patients are not just people with medical problems that come to see me. They have entire lives that exist outside of my office. Their living environment, personal relationships, work experiences, hobbies, diet, etc. are all pieces of the puzzle that make them who they are,” she said.
When it comes to giving advice to her patients, she likes to remind them that it is a two-way street. “I will never tell you what to do; we will come up with a care plan together so that each of us is putting in the work to make you better,” she adds. “I have the knowledge needed to address medical problems, only patients have the power to implement that knowledge into action to make a difference in their health.”
Dr. Dockery’s love for biology as well as human anatomy and physiology is what inspired her to pursue a career in medicine. “The way the human body is built and works is incredible and I was always intrigued by the challenge and complexity involved in healing the body that wasn’t functioning correctly,” she said.
