Physician

After teaching algebra for a while after college, Dr. Mohsina Alom realized more than ever that medicine was the career for her. “The main reason I went into pediatrics is that I love working with kids,” she explains. “Teaching helped me realize that it would be great to help kids in a different ways, which is why I decided to go to medical school and become a pediatrician.”

In her work, Dr. Alom always makes a point to understand the patient’s point of view. “I think empathy goes a long way when working with patients and that really helps them open up to you. I think the fact that here we really listen to our patients is one reason our patients come back to us and why they appreciate us so much.”

Dr. Alom works in Pediatric Urgent Care, which provides services to patients after-hours and on weekends. When she sees a patient, it is often for the first time. This is one of the reasons she enjoys using Reliant Medical Group’s electronic medical record (EMR) so much. “Being able to access a patient’s medical record instantly really assists us in so many ways. Because of the EMR, I have access to the patient’s full chart, and that really helps with diagnosis.”

One of the issues that Dr. Alom and other physicians deal with is the fact that patients often want to make their own diagnosis using information that they have found on the Internet. “It’s great that patients feel empowered to do research but there is so much information out there that you can easily come across inaccurate information, so in many ways it is a double-edge sword. As a doctor, I try to make sure my patients are as informed as possible about everything that is affecting their health.”

In her free time Dr. Alom is an avid traveler and enjoys taking trips to New York and New Jersey as well as Virginia Beach and other areas. Dr. Alom also enjoys cooking and baking and trying out new recipes.
