My philosophy is that the role of the physician is to educate and empower. We educate our patients so they understand the cause of their symptoms, treatment options, and risk factors for future problems. By doing so, we empower them to chose the options that best fit their individual needs. This approach respects each individual as a unique and autonomous partner in pursuing optimal health.
