Philosophy of Medicine

There is more to a patient than just the disease, much like there is more to an iceberg than the tip we can see above water. When practicing nursing and medicine, I take a holistic approach that encompasses multiple factors in a person's life, such as social, economic, and cultural factors.

    Saw Dr. Sundeen 2x. Dr. Sundeen makes it a point to get me into her schedule. That is a comfort.
