Philosophy of Care
Forming therapeutic relationships with my patients has been the most satisfying way for me to practice medicine. I find when the patient is equally invested in trying to solve a problem or work on an ailment, the best results are found. I believe that there is always hope.
Possibilities are endless when there is a positive mental attitude and a willingness to adhere to the plan. I would like to describe my personal style as holistic as I believe that you cannot just treat individual problems but have to look at the whole picture when crafting a therapeutic plan.
