Philosophy Of Medicine

“I believe patients should be treated as you would treat your own family member, and that mutual respect is the foundation of the patient-physician relationship. As an emergency physician, I see patients and their families at a challenging moment in their lives, and it is a privilege to have a hand in their care and healing.”
