His values have allowed him to become a leader in the world of orthopedic surgery. He believes that every patient should be given a chance to have a functioning musculoskeletal system. He goes above and beyond to perfect his skill each day.
However, Dr. Schellack had humble beginnings since he was a young boy. He always dreamed that he wanted to help other people recover from their injuries. He did not know what area to specialize in until he enrolled in college. There he witnessed a serious accident that crippled a young woman. The surgeons at the time were unable to help this woman recover. This was when a young Dr. Shellack knew that he could have made a difference if he had the right resources at the time. It was only a matter of time until Gregg would enroll himself in medical school. The rest is history.
Dr. Schellack currently works for Sutter Coast Hospital in Crescent City, California. He regularly performs orthopedic surgeries on patients who desperately need help. Dr. Schellack has received prestigious awards over the years and continues to impress the medical community with his work. Dr. Schellack continues to make strides in his local community and shows no signs of stopping any time soon. His values are truly a foundation that has inspired others to become better versions of themselves. There are no other doctors quite like Dr. Schellack in our society.
How did you get involved in the medical industry?
It all happened whenever I was a young man and I witnessed a woman receive critical injuries. She became crippled due to these injuries. The orthopedic surgeons at the time did not have the expertise to help her recover. If I had known what I know now I would have been able to help her. This inspired me to become an orthopedic surgeon. I want to give people a second chance after they experience crippling musculoskeletal injuries.
Did you ever doubt your business idea?
I never doubted that the medical field would be fruitful. While I am not in this for the money, there are countless opportunities in the medical industry if one tries hard enough. I enjoy what I do and look forward to coming to work every day.
Did you have a mentor?
While I did not have a mentor that helped me in my early days, I will say Frederic E. Mohs is most certainly an inspiration. He created a new surgical technique that helped shape the industry during the 1900s. Men who innovate are truly the most inspirational to me.
Do you have any regrets about your career choices?
I have absolutely no regrets about my career choices. I enjoy coming to work every day and helping improve the lives of people who need it the most. I would not change anything about my past.
Which business leaders do you admire most?
Steve Jobs was another inspiration for me. I tend to follow leaders who try to change the industry for the better. People did not understand how incredible Steve Jobs was until later in his life. That man is brilliant and something that all business owners should look towards for ideas.
What does the future hold for your company?
Sutter Coast Hospital has one of the best medical success rates in our area. We continue to improve our hospital to help those who are injured and ill.
What is the most important aspect of your brand?
My personal brand consists of thinking outside the box and optimism. I believe that we are all capable of success if we think creatively to find answers for our problems.
What motivates you?
Helping other people is my biggest motivating factor in life.
How do you unwind?
Movies have always been a big part of my life. They have always helped me take a step back from my current situation and see the world through the eyes of fictional characters. It helps me get a different perspective on life and enables me to think creatively when it comes to solving problems in my life.
Do you have any advice for our readers?
The most important thing that anyone can do in life is to not give up on what you want to do. There will come times whenever you feel like the world is against you. Sometimes you may be right about this. However, you must keep pushing forward if you wish to succeed. Never give up on your vision. You will have bad days that make you want to quit. I promise you that those days are temporary and that there are better days just ahead. Always keep yourself in check with this kind of thinking.
