Healthy Face: Dr P

Each week, Healthy Bridgeport features a "Healthy Face." Today, we take a different twist as we shine the spotlight on Dr. Mark Povroznik. Meet the doctor and see what insight he has to offer: Tell me a little about yourself, your family, your profession & why it is important to you …

First, Dr. P’s answers may be a little unconventional; however, I was asked to share and will do so with humbleness.


When I relayed this invitation about participating in a health story with my daughter Sarah...She blurted out giggles! Always praise your children for being honest! There is no need to lie to ourselves, that is one journey step in being healthy. While I am “a Health Face," I am by no means the “Face of Health”. LOL! Who am I? I am an ordinary guy who occasionally sees ways to be extra-ordinary. I’m not simple, I’m at times complex. A “care bear” of sorts. I like to be creative, solve problems, break monotony with humor and above all, bring about meaningful and sustained improvements! The word neighbor means more to me than the person next door. I haven’t found too much that I wanted to do that I couldn’t do, just at times requiring more courage than most would realize. I would love to be able to echo my voice like MercyMe, but I can’t. So realizing who I am not is healthy. Still fun to dream!
