Philosophy Of Medicine

"My goal is to provide the patient and family with all available options and help them come up with the best plan of treatment. I always respect and support patient’s final decision even if it contradicts my point of view. That is something I’ve learned from my father in law who battled lung cancer and was one of my best teachers."
