Dr. Jelin Israel-Cvik
Dr. Jelin was born in India, but at the age of 6 moved to Maryland where she grew up with her parents and two younger sisters. She is the first person in both her immediate and extended family to go to medical school in America. She knew right off the bat she wanted to be a doctor at the age of 13! She felt it was her calling and felt honored to be in a country where she had the privilege to pursue her dreams.
What keeps you passionate about what you do?
“I enjoy people and I love to help them in any way I can. The relationships with my patients are strong, almost like family. I treat them with the same compassion I would show to one of my own family members. I love to make people feel better and put a smile on their face! The practice of medicine is more than just a job for me… It is my way of giving back and helping others.”
