Philosophy of Medicine

I feel that open communication is the key to patient success. It is of utmost importance to listen to your patient's concerns before coming to a conclusion on a diagnosis and treatment plan. The diagnosis must be clearly explained in terms the patient can understand with all treatment options laid out so an informed decision can be made. We must respect the patient's choices in managing their care. As providers, we need to work in a team approach, with the patient being the main player and the provider being the coach.
