Are you Avoiding your Doctor?

By Dr. Romi Chopra

You have been feeling pain in your abdominal area since last Monday; despite taking over the counter pain meds the pain has gotten worse. Now that you think about it, you are long overdue for your yearly check up. Instantly your mind floods with anxiety-ridden ‘what ifs’.

What if this abdominal pain is somehow related to my irregular period cycle?

Am I okay?

This is the point where you start to Google your symptoms in hopes of figuring out what’s wrong. Eventually, it all becomes too much for you. You find a way to distract yourself only to revisit these feelings again when the pain becomes worse. But what is stopping you from seeing your doctor?

It is important to understand the reasons you might be afraid to visit your doctor. It is also important to understand that it is a pretty common fear. But it’s not a fear of seeing your doctor that stops you from getting a check-up, it’s the fear of the unknown. In our minds, we manage to think of the worst-case scenario, by not going to the doctor you’re pushing off the possibility of facing what could be wrong. Seeing your doctor helps address the issues you are having and prevent something from becoming the worst-case scenario. Getting over your fear of visiting your doctor can be a tall order to fill. Here are some tips to help you manage your anxiety about visiting your doctor.

Dr. Paramjit "Romi" Chopra, M.D., the Founder and CEO of the MIMIT Health joins eHealth Radio and the Health News & Radiology Channels for a dynamic and educational interview regarding health care matters that combines state-of-the-art minimally invasive surgeries with a holistic eastern medicine to treat uterine fibroids, peripheral arterial disease, varicose veins, among many other conditions.

Listen to interview (click here) with host Eric Michaels & guest Dr. Paramjit "Romi" Chopra as they discuss the following:

  • Tell me about your upbringing: How was it growing up in India and transitioning into being a physician in the US?

  • What motivated you to focus on interventional radiology? What about women's health?

  • You focus heavily on uterine fibroids: What are some common misconceptions about fibroids? Why is uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) the most effective treatment?

  • What are other common conditions best treated by minimally invasive surgeries?

  • How do you incorporate eastern holistic healing into traditional western medicine?

Dr. Chopra opened the Midwest Institute for Minimally Invasive Therapies (MIMIT) in 2004. As an interventional radiology and endovascular therapy practice, MIMIT specializes in minimally invasive treatments for arterial disease such as peripheral artery disease (PAD), uterine fibroid disease (UFE), venous disease and musculoskeletal disease (spine interventions).

Dr. Paramjit “Romi” Chopra, M.D. is an interventional radiologist with over 30 years’ experience in the field of interventional radiology and endovascular therapy. The standards for his daily work were set after completing his medical studies and training in Mumbai, India, followed by his fellowship and residency at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School in the US. After working extensively in academia and research, Dr. Chopra became one of the youngest heads of an interventional radiology department in the US. Eager to share his experience, he placed great emphasis on training and introduced a wide range of education and research programs for students, colleagues, and residents. At the same time, however, he was committed to keeping the focus firmly on patient needs at all time.

Lending his eastern roots and extensive western experience Dr. Chopra unifies the best of both worlds. His in-depth understanding of complex patient conditions is backed by state-of-the-art treatment therapies, enabling him to deliver exceptional patient care of the highest quality.

Dr. Chopra believes the path to long-term success lies in treating patients’ spirit, mind and body – not just their medical conditions. His institute has given him the opportunity to create a well-thought-out environment where patients and their families can feel calm, get the information they need and be treated with cutting-edge healthcare technologies.

How Is Our Health: Check-Up On Black America

Back-to-school time often gets us back into a routine. And it’s a great time to think about our health. We talked to a few experts to find out some things African Americans specifically should look out for while taking care of our health. 

Fibroids and Black Women 

While some of the major health issues like heart and kidney disease, cancer, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, sick cell disease, and lupus are among the more serious health problems Black people face, uterine fibroids in African-American women are also an issue. 

Though uterine fibroids typically are not life threatening, the level of pain, and interruption of daily life, calls for attention. 

While fibroids typically are noncancerous growths of the uterus that often appear during childbearing years, it’s not known for sure what causes them. They reportedly grow rapidly during pregnancy when hormone levels are high and shrink with anti-hormone medication.

A Salmon Swimming Upstream - Dr. Romi Chopra, An Interview with Ziehm Imaging
US_ImagingMagazine_web.jpg

For more than ten years there has been a clear trend toward outpatient treatment facilities in the United States. New methods for anesthetizing patients and the increase in minimally invasive interventions create support for operations in which the patient can go home within just a few hours or days. Dr. Paramjit Chopra is pushing the boundaries and is at the forefront of this trend. 

You have lived and worked in the USA for nearly 30 years. Looking back at the beginning of your career, what are your thoughts?
As a medical student from India, I came to a country in which education and the power of innovation were the top priority and the possibilities seemed unlimited. This fascinated me right from the start. Even though my early years as an unpaid research fellow were difficult, I always kept my eyes on the American Dream. I struggled every day to achieve success and I felt like a salmon swimming upstream.

Being a native of India, in what ways has your former home influenced the development of your career?
It was only after I came to America that I understood how much Indian culture and religion had influenced me. For me, there is no difference between Christians, Muslims, Hindus or other religious groups. The people are what count, no matter if they are black, white, yellow or blue. Now, in my profession, I combine the spiritual thinking of India with my medical knowledge from the West. This means that, in the end, treating the person as a whole is important to me, keeping their feelings and fears in mind, and not viewing them just as a patient.

Minimum to the Maximum – Dr. Paramjit Chopra, discusses how minimally invasive therapies benefit patient health physiologically and emotionally, and maximize patient well-being
Untitled+design+(1).png

Dr. Paramjit “Romi” Chopra, founder of the midwest institute for minimally invasive therapies (MIMIT), has a mission to help people, to aid them in moving forward in their lives. Dr. Chopra believes people are the foundational bedrock of a community and that all humans want to live full, rewarding lives, to the best of their god-given potential. Dr. Chopra describes the disease as ‘dis’ ‘ease’ and his goal with MIMIT is to help people live healthier lives and be the solution to their health problems. Minimally invasive, or as Dr. Chopra refers to it—enlightened healthcare—brings traditional health solutions together with more personal, complex and sometimes esoteric issues, such as feelings and thoughts. For as dr. Chopra explains, we are not robots; we have emotions and feel things and these are important in the overall scope of our care.

Meet Paramjit “Romi” Chopra of MIMIT (Midwest Institute for Minimally Invasive Therapies)
20538_101291029902394_4691196_n.jpg

Today we’d like to introduce you to Paramjit “Romi” Chopra.

Romi, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I am a physician and an entrepreneur passionate about taking care of people, caring for people using holistic and hi-tech techniques and remedies to help people lead a happy and healthy life. I trained at Harvard medical school and pursued academic medicine but ultimately got frustrated by the waste, inefficiencies and lack of patient-centric care at large institutions. I watched patients stumble through complex systems that appear to care only for their existence. Physicians worked in silo’s and patients were lost and did not easily receive the state of the art minimally invasive options.

I then formed MIMIT with the goal of providing state of the art, minimally invasive treatment options in the community, closer to their homes. We integrated holistic patient care methods such as meditation, music therapy along with hi-tech state of the art advanced techniques using image guidance. We strive to treat the body, mind and soul, not just in words but with our day to day actions.

I chose to apply best of practice principles from other industries applying systems thinking, project and process management, software as a service, cloud platforms, advanced data analytics to help provide cost effective care. My focus was to keep the patient out of unnecessary hospitalization yet provide advanced care in an outpatient setting.

We currently provide minimally invasive, advanced image guided therapeutic options to all of Chicagoland in an outpatient environment.

Medstreaming has been transformational and a game changer for us, Dr. Chopra said.
