To Whom It May Concern;
My name is Dr. Christopher Robert Dobson, MD. For the past few months, I have been going through a unique transition in my medical career. After completing four years of Orthopaedic Surgical Residency, I determined that I was not achieving the level of fulfillment I desired from the path I was taking in medicine and elected to change specialties. Of note, I left on excellent terms with my program and waited until a suitable replacement was obtained before resignation. Since the time of my resignation, I have been on, for lack of a better description, roller coaster trying to determine precisely what I would like to pursue for the rest of my life in medicine. From working construction, to mobile medicine home visits, urgent care, and everything in between, it has been quite the trip. I truly loved my time at UCSD and Orthopaedic Surgery, but I knew it was not the field I truly felt I could make my greatest impact on. I began feeling lost, and slowly began feeling increasingly depressed about what to do with my career, and for that matter, my life. It was at this point that I met Rowinn Dionisio, who was able to reignite a fire I thought may have been extinguished.
I could sit here and tell you about Rowinn's grades, his upbringing, ask him for his CV and start spouting off generic information. But that's not what separates Rowinn from the others. That's not what I can guarantee will make a difference in health care. In medicine, the “intangibles” are qualities that one possesses that simply cannot be taught. Facts can be learned, skills can be taught, algorithms memorized, and test questions repeated until they can be recited one hundred times over. But the intangible qualities are what healthcare professionals truly need to separate themselves from others. Of course effort and performance are important. But you cannot teach someone to care. Or show up early without being PERSONAL INTERESTS told. Or stay late because they are genuinely interested and want to learn. Or sit down at the bedside of a patient who is terminal and simply have a conversation because sometimes that conversation can make all the difference to that individual. I may not have been terminally ill, but I can honestly say without seeing the passion Rowinn Dionisio has for taking care of others, I would not have made it through the difficult times following my transition from residency.
When I first met Rowinn, he was working at a local gym. He is a relatively hard person to miss because of his size, but when drew my attention in his direction was the care he was showing to a kind elderly woman who was trying to adjust the seat of a machine. I saw countless gym members walk past this woman without a care in the world. For a man who may appear intimidating to some, it was clear he was a gentle giant.
As I grew to know Rowinn with time, I realized how committed he truly is to improving the health of others. Even during the difficult times when he was forced to stay at home and take care of his sick mother, he still found ways to help out friends and others who were going through the respiratory therapy program and it truly impressed me how much he wanted these people to succeed. And the reason for this is simple. He genuinely cares about others. Both those people he was helping in the program, but the patient's they would one day be taking care of. That's who Rowinn is. No matter what the situation, he always managed to be the one helping other's during times of need, even when it meant sacrificing his own goals or putting them on hold. Despite his love of respiratory therapy and his desire to be on the front lines taking care of patients, when his mother fell ill there wasn't a question in his mind about what he would do. To me, it was truly selfless. And his passion for others is what helped me re-discover the passion I once had for medicine. For this, I will always be grateful.
I will leave you with this. Rowinn Dionisio is not just another person who's going to punch the clock, put in his hours, and go home. His passion and genuine empathy and care for others shines through and he brings out the best in himself and others. I would be honored to be working side by side with him one day, and I strongly recommend you consider making him a member of your team. I guarantee you will not regret it. Please contact me should you have any questions.
