Care Philosophy:

I believe in a patient focused approach to treatment, which incorporates a few things;

In order to develop a good relationship and trust with your doctor you should be afforded the time to discuss your concerns. It is essential for me to spend time listening to my patients. Everyone is unique, so by taking that time to listen is an important step in the process of good care. Understanding that every person has differing symptoms, concerns, complex conditions and expectations, that must be taken into consideration before we can proceed to a resolution. Each persons situation and circumstance may vary, and the treatment plan can be adjusted accordingly. Once I have examined my patients I feel it is important to explain and educate about what brought them in. I want you to know what can be done as well as what I think should be done. It is important to not only discuss the condition but what the treatment options or management plan that fits the patients individual needs. Once we have reviewed or plan, its vital that patients are invested in their own care, this leads to better outcomes and satisfaction. I believe that treatment should always start with a simple solution and if necessary work its way up to a more complex treatment. Being proactive to some conditions could be helpful in the future.
