Philosophy of Care

I believe in fully understanding my patients' symptoms and their perspectives first. Emphatic listening has always helped to achieve this milestone. Then, I use my best clinical judgment to formulate a treatment plan for my patients that is doable for them. I intend to help my patients to gain their full potential to be happy, healthy, and valuable in their lives.
