El Paso family physician Andres Enriquez, MD, talks about how frustrating the health care system is, and how rewarding it is for him to speak out on behalf of his patients.
“My parents don’t speak English, and luckily I am educated and I can help them out. I can just imagine all these other people that don’t speak English and have nobody to advocate for them,” says Dr. Enriquez. Helping those patients — “That’s why I love practicing medicine. … At some point somebody’s got to say something.”
