February 6, 2013- Sinai-Grace docs spotlighted for Black History Month
DETROIT – February is Black History Month and DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital is proudly recognizing African American doctors who have followed family members into medicine. These doctors are a few of the many physicians at Sinai-Grace who continually provide excellent medical care to patients.
Dr. John R. Trotter II is a family practice physician, general surgeon and vice president of the Detroit Black Chamber of Commerce. Dr. Trotter was inspired to enter medicine by his father, Dr. Johnny Ray Trotter, who taught him the value of hard work, perseverance and discipline. Dr. Trotter’s decision to become a doctor was sealed after receiving a stethoscope as a Christmas gift when he was just 5 years old.
Dr. Afzal Beemath, medical director of palliative medicine at Sinai-Grace and Harper University Hospital, was also inspired by his father. Born and raised in South Africa, Dr. Beemath was inspired by the words of Nelson Mandela to “stay in school,” which led him to a career in medicine. He hopes the high quality care provided by the Detroit Medical Center will be a driving force in turning around the city of Detroit.
Dr. Camille Blake, an internal medicine physician, comes from a family of eight physicians spanning three generations who have all served as her inspiration to enter the field. She knew from the moment she dissected a lamb’s heart in the fourth grade that she wanted to follow the footsteps of so many others in her family.
Dr. Jennifer Martin, an emergency medicine physician, was greatly influenced by her older sister to pursue a career in medicine. As a Detroit native, Dr. Martin understands the hardships that many individuals in the local community experience and hopes to inspire local children to dream big and believe they too can become a doctor, no matter what obstacles come before them.
Dr. Lisa Randon is a pediatrician and a Detroit native who was inspired by her parents to pursue a career in medicine. During Dr. Randon’s last year of medical school, her mother was treated for cancer at the DMC, and she was impressed by the high quality of care she received. She strives to always provide that same level of care to her patients. Dr. Randon feels that African American physicians are uniquely poised to address misconceptions as well as overcome cultural and societal barriers that prevent African Americans in the community from seeking necessary medical care.
Dr. John M. Barnwell is the chief of surgery and medical director of surgical oncology at Sinai-Grace. His fate as a surgeon was sealed the first time he observed his father perform an operation. But Dr. Barnwell was apprehensive at first, because his hands would shake when he was nervous. His father assured him that surgery was mostly about judgment, and by gaining knowledge, experience and confidence, he could cure his problem.
These physicians are only a few among a diverse team of experienced doctors at Sinai-Grace who serve the metro Detroit community and provide the highest level of care to their patients. To book an appointment with a Sinai-Grace physician, call (313) 966-4800.
