Philosophy Of Medicine

"I approach patients in my practice as if they are one of my friends or family. I try to empathize with their specific concerns and treat patients with honesty. My philosophy of medicine is to explain what is going on as thoroughly as possible and then to offer treatment suggestions to best care for the issue. I try to give patients the information they need to make their own informed decision for care."
