Dr. Samip Kothari joined Neonatal Resources of Wisconsin in 2011. During his fellowship at Milwaukee Children’s hospital he received a master’s in bioethics and thought it was important given the challenges in neonatology. Dr. Kothari was always drawn to neonatology as it occupies an unique subsection of medicine that is both parts science and social services. Dr. Kothari understands that as a neonatologist, he is there for his patients and parents in their most vulnerable moments and finds this interaction, when done well, profoundly rewarding. Practicing with Neonatal Resources of Wisconsin at SSM St Mary’s Madison has given Dr. Kothari that ability as he is now the direct contact to the families rather than a layer of residents and fellows at other institutions.
