What brings you genuine joy?
At ProHealth Partners we have built a diverse and knowledgeable team that prides themselves on meeting the rehabilitation needs of our patients. There is no better feeling than when a patient calls me to tell me what a great job that one of our therapists have done and how it has helped them regain their independence.

What is the best self-improvement tip you’ve ever heard?
Knowledge is power! This is one of my favorite sayings and one of the reasons that I have enjoyed my career at ProHealth. You need to find time for yourself to learn something new or progress your understanding of areas that interest you. ProHealth has allowed me to grow in my career by allowing me many opportunities to increase my knowledge.

What’s one thing that always makes you feel better?
Exercise! Being a Physical Therapist no matter how tired I am or how down I am feeling getting out and taking a walk with my family always puts me in a better mood.

What’s your favorite local luxury?
All the local parks! Doing home health you spend a lot of time in your car. I encourage our staff and our patients to get out and take a walk during the day around the parks if they are able to. The more active you can stay the better you feel.

Dr. Laurence Baibak

The two concepts have a reciprocal relationship: If you can make your outsides match the way you feel on the inside, there is a harmony or homeostasis achieved between your physical self and your emotional self. Achieving harmony always looks and feels good!

Symptom you should watch for: Dry eye syndrome is one of the most under-diagnosed conditions in all of eye care. Dry eye can manifest as redness, itching, burning, over-tearing, and even blurred vision. No two patients’ symptoms are the same. We have identified some excellent treatment options to help our dry eye patients and are continually researching new treatments and technologies to add to our practice to deliver outstanding dry eye care.

My inspiration: My father was a paramedic when I was growing up and I got to see how paramedics, nurses, and doctors interact and work together to form an outstanding care team. I grew up going to the eye doctor early and often. Nearsightedness runs strongly in my family and I got my first pair of eyeglasses at 5 years old.

You probably don’t know: I personally have had LASIK! I really enjoy sharing how LASIK changed my life with patients when they ask if they are a candidate for the procedure. I try to ease patients’ anxiety towards the procedure and get them excited about a new lifestyle without glasses or contacts!

What brings you genuine joy?
As cliche as it sounds, helping others and making a difference brings me genuine joy. My business model at Serenity, the recipients of Ruthie’s Angels, the nonprofit we founded, and my love for the people I interact with on a day to day basis reflect that.

What is the best self-improvement tip you’ve ever heard?
“Givers need to set limits because takers never do”….learn to say no, prioritize, and implement “me time”.

What self-improvement tip do you wish you learned sooner?
Quality over quantity within my personal relationships and business collaborations. Being transparent and building trust through quality time and intention is key.

How do you stay motivated?
I stay motivated by focusing on the things that truly matter. When I am experiencing a bumpy time, I remember all of my blessings and practice gratitude. I find my center and get intrinsic motivation to tackle my challenges and embrace the journey.

How does looking good relate to feeling good?
I see this every day. Bright, beautiful and healthy smiles are life changing.

What does your ideal day look like, morning to night?
Balance is important to me. There is a rhythm. Work hard. Take exceptional care of my patients during the day and the same for my family when I get home. Throw in working out for myself and it’s been a great day.

What makes you feel powerful?
Happiness in others, for example, the smile on my son’s face when we spend time together or the change cosmetic dentistry makes in a patient’s life. It’s true Dr. Frankel wants to see your smile!

How do you know when you have too much on your plate?
I am skilled at managing time. Time management means creating systems that support change and growth.
