Philosophy of Care
I believe that it is imperative to formulate a cohesive partnership with each patient and to ensure that the care they receive meets their personal goals. Furthermore, providing all patients thorough information regarding their current health status is essential, as this will be the key in appropriately planning for the patient's goals of care. Each patient has the right to be well-informed of their care, I appreciate having open/fluid conversations with patients and their family members. Compassion, encouragement, patience, and respect are the principles that guide my practice.
