Know the State of the Heart Before You Discuss State of the Art Treatments

Taking care of yourself is more than a basic necessity. It’s crucial to living the happy, full life you want. You can’t take care of others if you don’t take care of yourself first.

Dr. Drai has spent the last 13 years changing the lives of the patients he sees regularly. He has helped hundreds of women transform their lives by starting with education and prevention, so they can take control of their own health.

Good health is as much a mental state as it is a physical one. When Dr. Drai works with his patients, he starts with the state of the heart first. Early on, he recognized how important a woman’s relationships with herself and those around her are to her overall health. Once these relationships are healed, good health always follows.

Dr. Drai’s Story

Dr. Drai knew he wanted to be a doctor by the age of 6.

While with his grandmother, who cleaned houses for doctors, he heard his own heartbeat through a stethoscope. This sound hooked him immediately and he knew he wanted to spend his life healing people.

He also lost his grandmother to ovarian cancer. Hearing the stories from his mother of how poorly his grandmother was treated shaped his philosophy of patient care.

Originally, Dr. Drai intended to go into cardiology, until he delivered a baby during his residency. That experience transformed him forever and a week before he had to declare his focus, he switched to obstetrics and gynecology.

Caring for women throughout the physical and mental changes in their lives is important. Dr. Drai is a strong advocate for women’s health, including preventative medicine and continuity of care, encourages women to be active in their own care plans.
