We had the good fortune of connecting with Dr. Tiffany Sizemore and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dr. Tiffany, what principle do you value most?
“Mean what you say and say what you mean”. I feel as though many people say what they think someone wants to hear, not what they need to hear. Many times, that will lead to further issues and complications. For instance, if you know that you can not (or do not want to!) go to lunch with a colleague, politely say “I can’t but thank you”. When we say “maybe” or “I’ll see what I can do”, not only will it invite further texts and phone calls to confirm, but it will also leave another person hanging when they could have made other plans. There is no need to be rude or offensive, but sometimes, it is okay to just say “no thank you”! Be true to your word. Be consistent with your thoughts and your words!

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I have a concierge internal medicine and cardiology medical office in Fort Lauderdale. I jokingly refer to my practice as may “first baby”. I have put a ton of blood, sweat and tears into building a medical office I can be proud of. I have little to no wait times, a comfortable office and staff who understands customer service. My concierge patients have 24/7 access to me for urgent matters and we offer many services directly in our office. Getting to the place I am now was not easy. There are not a lot of female cardiologists, so I felt the need to prove myself early on in may career. On top of that, when I started my practice, I was very young (for doctor standards) so I really felt as if the cards were stacked against me. But, as I practiced more, I realized that these were qualities that made me stand out. I felt as if I could offer more time with my patients by utilizing my knowledge of technology and yet still offer a more empathetic approach to medicine, which I felt was missing in today’s world. I am very proud of what I have accomplished and I am looking forward to building more great relationships with my patients.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I am a huge fan of anything with a view. So, I would definitely go to the beach for dinner. I love Steak 954 for a quiet meal or S3 for more of a music/hang out dinner. Las Olas is always an easy win, especially with Piazza Italia’s ladies night or El Camino (hello, watermelon margarita!). For kids, the Museum of Discovery and Science is always a big hit (well, for adults too, actually!)

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I have an amazing group of friends who consistently push me to excel and succeed. I truly believe that you are who you surround yourself with and I have “framily” who I consider my biggest cheerleaders. Here’s to Lisa x 2, David, Juana, my sister Heather, Pam and Bianca!
