Philosophy Of Medicine

“Patients deserve to have excellent medical care from their local providers. I feel that great care involves equal participation of my patients and myself. Careful listening is a wonderful virtue. I spend significant time doing education during clinic visits, and making sure their questions have been answered in a way they can understand.”
