Natalie J. Carpenter, P.A.
Why did you decide to go into medicine?
I knew I wanted a career where I could dedicate myself to helping and caring for others. I was definitely inspired by my mom, who is a nurse. My older sister is also a nurse, and my two younger sisters are both occupational therapists, so I guess you could say it's a family tradition!
What does treating people well mean to you?
Treating people like I would my own family - always with respect, compassion and without judgement.
If you weren't a medical professional, what would you be?
An elementary school teacher or a professional organizer.
What's your favorite WNY restaurant?
Lucia's on the Lake for pasta & seafood, and Kuni's for the best sushi!
