Philosophy of Care
I strive to provide high-quality care to my patients in a personal manner. When I am in the examining room with a patient, my mind is completely focused on my patient. I spend as much time as it takes to understand what their issues are before conducting an accurate physical examination that focuses on the issues at hand. After that, I engage my patients in discussions about their care and provide an opportunity for them to share in the decision-making process. I believe that rather than just telling my patients what to do, it is important to provide informed options so that they can choose what fits best with their personal values - to the extent that it is safe and reasonable to do so.
I really enjoy just about all of the interactions I have with patients. I like explaining what is going on and helping them understand their health and medical conditions. I enjoy answering questions from my patients because I believe that the more patients understand, the better able they are to care for themselves. Most of all, I enjoy working together with my patients as a partner in their care.
