Philosophy of Care
I believe in treating the whole patient, not just their illness. Development of a strong physician-patient relationship plays a critical role in diagnosis and management of one’s ailments, and doing so with genuine care and compassion. We as physicians must listen with an open mind, free of judgment regardless of race, religion or creed, so as to deliver the highest level of care to each and every patient and their family. We must treat every patient in a humanistic manner with dignity and respect. As Family Physicians, our role goes well beyond just treating disease; we also serve as role models for those we care for. I value the importance of promoting wellness while working collaboratively with patients to educate them how to be their own health advocates.
