Partnering for Health
In order to ward off illness and maximize our health, we need to get enough physical activity, rest, and proper nutrition. As a physician, I aim to empower my patients to make wise decisions regarding ways they can improve their health. I teach my patients what they can do to decrease their chances of developing obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol, coronary artery disease, cancer, arthritis, and on and on.
Listening to each person allows me to provide exceptional care. Being present for my patients allows me to partner with them and treat them most effectively.
Caring starts with empathy. Putting myself in their shoes, understanding that patients are nervous going to see the doctor, and how I handle my role as their provider, is of utmost importance.
Professionalism, respect, and an honest approach to patient care are integral to being a successful doctor.
