Internal Medicine Doctor: Adam Brock, MD


My name is Doctor Adam Brock,
I’m an internal medicine resident here, at Duke Health. I’ve always sort of been on this path. I was interested in medicine as a kid,
kinda growing up, even through high school,
college, it was on that track. I kind of have that inclination that
most of the folks that I’m in residency with have just that interest in science,
and the human body, disease processes, and kinda that interest in helping people out. I always really like to get to know
my patients on a personal level. I feel like everything that we teach our
patients, every treatment that we try to institute with our patients, really hinges
on who they are as a person and what they will respond to personally, and not just
from a strictly medical perspective. To really understanding who a patient is,
where they come from, their understanding of their disease,
their willingness to make changes. Everyone is so profoundly different, and
that’s kinda one of the things that really excites me about what I do, is getting to
know each of these individual persons and adapting my practice to fit their needs. When someone does well,
when someone thanks you, when you see someone in a very bad state,
someone very sick, and then you’re able to make changes to solve problems and to
try to have addressed these things, again, in kinda the context of the individual,
and then see change, see positive change. I feel like that’s the most
gratifying thing about the job. I grew up in East Tennessee, not too far
away from here, close to the mountains, went to school in Virginia. Did my college and my med school
up in Charlottesville, Virginia. So I’ve kind of been bopping
around the southeast. Recently married,
right before starting residency here. So that’s been a big
positive change in my life. Really enjoy the outdoors,
get out there every chance I get, and pretty great place for that.
