Check Out Flora Sinha’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Flora Sinha.

Hi Flora, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I am a board-certified internal medicine physician practicing Playa Vista. Unlike many stories where people knew medicine was their “calling,” I went through many years of self-reflection, ups and downs, pivoting, adapting and imposter syndrome to make it here. Furthermore, I started my social media platform to share my secondary infertility journey as a South Asian woman to battle stigma and normalize these conversations for our community. My own journey led to significant mindset changes that I still currently use to overcome obstacles.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
No road is very smooth. Perfection is impossible and is never the expectation. Many moments of self-doubt, imposter syndrome, and having my ego get in the way have paved my journey here.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I am an outpatient internal medicine physician practicing in Playa Vista, California. My favorite part of outpatient clinical medicine is the relationship I am able to build with my patients. Patients are at their most vulnerable when they see their physicians, and I try make a safe, nonjudgemental space for my patients to talk about their medical issues. I also counsel a lot on preventative medicine – preventing health issues before they arise. This pertains to nutrition, exercise, and mental health. I try hard to help my patients feel comfortable but I am also known for my “no nonsense” attitude. I keep it real with my patients. Having open, honest communication is the best way we can develop a solid patient-doctor relationship.

Is there any advice you’d like to share with our readers who might just be starting out?
My advice is to always listen and follow your own path. Perfection is never the goal. Progress IS. Stop comparing your journey to others. Everyone’s success stories have ups AND downs. Especially in the medical field, we are pitted against each other. Other’s successes are NOT your failures. We are stronger together.
