Philosophy of Care

My practice philosophy has not changed during my many years practicing Medicine. First and foremost, I treat everyone as if they were a close friend or a family member. My philosophy is to treat each patient as an individual who has specific needs and concerns. I encourage my patients to become accountable for their own health and wellness. I partner with my patients in helping them to achieve a healthier lifestyle and work together towards a shared goal of reducing their risk of cardiovascular disease.

Dr prescribed [...] for me and just sent it straight to the pharmacy and had a nurse call me. Their was no discussion about side effects or if I could try diet and exercise vs medication first. I felt like the doctor could have explained more about the drug and why he wants me on it.
