Philosophy of Medicine

I went into medicine to help as many people as I can and to make a difference in their life. I treat every patient as if they are a close family member and involve them in making decisions in their healthcare. I love my job and enjoy taking care of young families with emphasis in family medicine with obstetrics and pediatrics.
