"Siren Socks detected an issue on a patient's foot during her first month of wear. She had an ulcer, which could have led to serious complications. I notified her doctor right away, who was able to save the toe before it became infected."
Gabe became a nurse in order to make a difference in people's lives and to take on new challenges. He shares, "It is a privilege to be a nurse; nothing motivates me more than knowing that I’m making an impact in my patients' lives. My profession can be very challenging at times but it’s an honor to help take care of those in need."
Reflecting on his current role, Gabe says, "I enjoy being a Siren nurse because our team is incredibly supportive. We all want to see each other—as well as our patients—succeed. Everyone at Siren is focused on the same mission: to help diabetic foot patients get the best quality of care. It's exciting to be part of a team that is innovating in healthcare and technology for the benefit of helping others."
