Post Rock Family Medicine is happy to welcome Allie Lohrmeyer for a rotation.  Allie will be working primarily with Dr. Brull in her clinic and in Doctors Without Delay until May 18.  She was happy to share some background information with the community:

Where are you from?

Not far from Plainville! I’m from the beautiful town of Oberlin, “where friends meet on brick streets!”

Why did you come to Plainville?

I came to work with my family doc idol, Dr. Brull. We met through a program called “Faces in Family Medicine” and she has mentored me throughout my medical school career. I’m very excited to get to learn from her!

What do you hope to be when you’re out of school? Why?

A rural family physician. I’ve known since I was little that I wanted to be a doctor, even though my mom, who’s a nurse, told me to be anything BUT a doctor! We’ve also had health issues in my family that introduced me to the world of medicine and how it can help make lives better. I love talking with and getting to know patients, probably because of my upbringing. In a small town, it’s all about relationships. I also like the ability to make a real difference in someone’s quality of life by helping them be healthier. Family medicine is a perfect fit!

What do you like about spending a rotation in Plainville?

This will be a time that I will get important real-world experience, since I aim to work in a community like Plainville and want to know how the medical community thrives here.

What do you like to do outside of medicine?

I love just spending time with friends and family. I like camping with my mom and doing chores on the farm with my dad. In my down time, I follow several TV shows and pop culture.

What do you hope to learn on your rotation in Plainville?

I understand many people in Plainville have a German heritage, and I like to learn new dishes, so I hope someone can show me how to cook a popular German food while I’m here!
