My name is Miriam Rotman, M.D., a Medical Director for Fidelis Diagnostics. I have been happily employed by Fidelis for the past 6 years, involved primarily in my favorite field — medical education, as well as many other endeavors (such as this blog).
Background: I grew up in Israel, where I went to Medical school and did both my residency and fellowship in primary practice. After moving to the States, I became involved with Fidelis at an early stage and have greatly enjoyed my time in the company both professionally and personally.
Fidelis has conceived this blog as a way of continuously updating for the public and the Fidelis community on the most current medical information as well as a forum for you to share views, ask questions, be more informed about your medical test and better educated.
We hope that if you have any question regarding an upcoming test, you post it on the blog and I promise to answer it as soon as possible. If I feel that the community will benefit from the question and answer, I might post it on the blog (anonymously of-course).
I hope you are as excited about this endeavor as I am,
Waiting to hear from you,
Miriam Rotman, M.D., Medical Director
