Doc Spotlight of the Week: Dr. Caroline Romanos
Where you were born and/raised?
I was born and raised in a town of 2000 people in Northwestern Connecticut.
What was your first job?
My first job was working in the cafeteria at the Yale Summer School of Art and Music. I was horrible at it and didn't last very long. Looking back this seems odd to me considering how much I love cooking now.
What made you decide to be a physician?
I decided to be a physician and ultimately a family physician for a very cliche reason. I felt that medicine was the best way to help people. I think I made the right decision.
What hobbies do you participate in your free time?
I love cooking and baking.
What would you like your fellow CMA physicians to know about you?
I speak Spanish and I love seeing Spanish speaking patients.
What is your favorite thing to do in the Winter?
It's repetitive but...bake!!
In your opinion, which animal is the best animal?
I am not an animal person, to the great dismay of my partner who feels very deprived of a dog in our home.
Why did you choose to serve as a delegate?
I think that I can help my patients one by one in my daily practice but the best way to make change on a population level is to participate in advocacy activities.
