Helping patients live their best life is what has motivated Dr. Ryan Enck throughout his training in Family Medicine and what gives him focus in his career working with hospitalized patients. With patients as key decision makers in their own lives, Dr. Enck works with each person individually, meeting them where they are at that moment to empower them in their choices.
“I hope that I can help my patients to understand how they can take control of their own health,” Dr. Enck said. “I hope that they will see me as someone who is trying to remove the health barriers that are keeping them from living their best life.”
But Dr. Enck also knows that it takes a team approach of multiple experts across many specialties to make this happen. “I like to work as a team,” he said. “I think that only through a team-based approach can we continue to deliver patient care with excellence.”
While first drawn to the study of chemistry and lab-based research, he missed the day-to-day human interaction that comes with a career in medicine. Dr. Enck, who completed his training at the Memorial Hospital Family Medicine Residency Program, thrives on the strength he sees in his patients, even in the most difficult of situations.
Dr. Enck is excited to be part of the Beacon team. “My plan after completing residency training was actually to return to Michigan,” he said. “But I was so impressed by the integrity and dedication to patient care at all levels of this organization that I simply couldn’t leave Beacon Medical Group.”
In his own words…
Who was the most influential person in your life? My dad taught me that hard work is important and that all people deserve respect.
If you could sit down to dinner with anyone, who would it be? I would want to talk with Malala Yousafzai, because everyone deserves the right to education. It would be an honor to meet someone who has fought so hard for this right.
What was your worst subject in school? I would have to say art class. I like art, but I cannot draw despite my most sincere efforts.
What are your hobbies? I like to do anything outdoors: kayaking, cycling, bonsai, camping, backpacking. I also enjoy spending time with my family and reading.
