MY PHILOSOPHY & APPROACH TO WELLNESS
Over the past 14 years, I have thoroughly enjoyed the practice of internal medicine. Each day I learn from my patients and they inspire me to be a better physician/person. Within a few office visits, I feel they become like family.
I believe the doctor-patient relationship is a critical part of delivering quality healthcare. Everything I have done for my practice is to ensure that I can continue to maintain a positive relationship with my patients and provide them with the quality care that they deserve. Given that the healthcare scene evolves rapidly, I do everything I can to continue educating myself in order to handle each patient with the most effective care possible.
I believe that primary care should not just be about providing treatment for acute health conditions, but rather providing a comprehensive health plan that is based on the patient and focuses on disease prevention and wellness. Each patient should be viewed as a whole and not the sum of their diagnoses. My philosophy is that quality health care is comprehensive and should be personalized to patient.
I believe it is important to treat patients with the respect they serve. Patients are given the proper amount of time for me to listen & understand their specific issues. This may cause extended wait times in the office, but I feel it gives me the time to assess each patient accurately.
