Why did you choose to become a physician?

Dr. Braniecki:

"My dad is a pediatrician back in Michigan. I was able to see how important he was to our community. My goal was serve the same role in my own community. So I decided to become a family physician."

How did you know you wanted to focus on family medicine?

Dr. Braniecki:

"I like the variety that goes along with family medicine. Taking care of people of all ages keeps things fresh and interesting. Every day is a new challenge."

What do you enjoy most about being a physician?

Dr. Braniecki:

"One of my favorite things to do is ask people what they do for a living. I hear all sorts of answers. When I hear what people do for the community and then think of myself as being the person that helps keep them on their feet, it’s a very gratifying feeling."

What other types of providers and/or technicians do you work with on a day-to-day basis?

Dr. Braniecki:

"I work closely with the NP in our office, Barbara Vonthron. We have a relatively small staff but they do an excellent job taking care of patients. We are also fortunate to have OB/GYN, nephrology, and pain management all working in the same office alongside of us."

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

Dr. Braniecki:

"I generally just enjoy being outside. This area has so much to offer. With Cedar Point, the Lake Erie Islands, state parks, and beaches – there is plenty to keep me busy."

What is your philosophy of care?

Dr. Braniecki:

"I don’t ever try to force people into taking medications or pursuing treatment that they are not comfortable with. My job is to educate patients and make recommendations based on the most up to date information that we have available. If I have armed my patients with the knowledge that they need to make the right decision on their healthcare, then I have done my job."
