About Pratistha Strong, DO

My husband and I met when we were 16 years old. We are both artists, first and clinicians, second. We would study late nights, abuse our bodies when finals would come, and vent out our frustrations by using our creative brain. Prose and Poetry by Pratistha is an expression of my own art form, mostly poetry and short stories. Prose and Poetry by Pratistha is material proof that one never really has to grow up!

In my younger days, I would write about existential crises--who am I and why am I here? During medical school and medical training, it was very hard to write--to express, to be mentally free. I would scribble little notes to myself about ideas that were valuable enough for a piece of paper. I always told myself that I'd do it later. Later. Now, I finally have the time to share those delicate memories that patients have shared with me. I write about them for 1) myself, as a catharsis and 2) for them, as an appreciation for their suffering.
