Melanie Rak, MD, a physiatrist at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago who uses a wheelchair, sees her disability as an asset. "I think that people may not realize that people with disabilities can bring something to their patients that physicians without disabilities don't."

When a patient with disabilities experiences discrimination, Dr. Rak can share how she has dealt with it, as well as offer a list of resources she has garnered through her own experience.
"One patient's father said his son was having a hard time finding a suit to wear to the prom," Dr. Rak said.
