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.

Nurse Practitioner

A graduate of the University of Massachusetts/Amherst and Regis College, Rachel Berkowitz finds her role as a Nurse Practitioner very fulfilling. “I enjoy getting to know people on a personal level, working with others, and learning new things, and being a Nurse Practitioner allows me to do that,” she explains. “It is truly a privilege to do this job.” Rachel thinks that the best care is given when the patient and provider team together to achieve common, realistic goals. “I have always felt that a common sense of respect, acceptance of personal strengths and challenges, and quality listening yield the best health outcomes for my patients. Most importantly, by creating these interactions, an intimate and honest relationship can be fostered.” In her free time, Rachel enjoys trying new types of cuisine. She also loves traveling and exploring new places plus spending time with her husband and English bulldog Bella.

Physician Assistant

A graduate of Stonehill College and MCPHS University, Alli has been a practicing physician assistant since 2010. Alli has always been interested in emergency medicine and urgent care, ever since she first watched some medical TV shows when she was younger. In her work at ReadyMED, Alli strives to make her patients feel at ease. “No one wakes up in the morning and wants to be sick or injured and spend their day in the doctor’s office, ER or urgent care center,” she explains. “That’s why I work hard to make people feel better and take care of their injury. For me, it’s incredibly satisfying to help someone and put a smile on their face at the same time.” In her spare time Alli enjoys being with family and friends. She also enjoys all things Disney, running, skiing and playing softball.
