In this Q&A, we ask Dr. Jordison why coaching is important to him.
Dr. Jordison: I started coaching 12 years ago [in 2011] when I joined McFarland Clinic. I played soccer at Gilbert High School.
Dr. Jordison: My purpose is being a good mentor in the lives of young people. It has been rewarding to get to know the youth and their families in the community.
Dr. Jordison: Seeing my players become good contributors to society is most rewarding.
Dr. Jordison: Awesome! It is a super-big high when your hard work pays off. In my 12 years, we have made it to State six times placing as high as second. This was special as it is our first-ever state title.
Dr. Jordison: I am grateful for my colleagues who allow me to adjust my schedule in the spring to accommodate my coaching schedule. My patients have also been very understanding. Coaching helps provide a change of scenery for me outside of the normal 8-to-5 office hours.
