Philosophy Of Medicine

“I work for the people who choose me as their provider, and I see myself as their guide through the difficulties of healthy living. I like to provide them with good information regarding options for prevention and treatment of illnesses, and help them choose what is best for them. I strongly encourage using the least amount of medication needed and focusing on healthy living, because ultimately what drives our quality of life is what we do for ourselves every moment of every day.”
