Care Philosophy

My patient care philosophy is based on four principles: 1) Developing an in-depth understanding of each patient’s problem and being a good listener. 2) Drawing from a solid and up-to-date base of subject knowledge and latest advancements. 3) Personalizing treatments to suit the specific needs of each individual patient. 4) Most importantly, involving the patient and their family in the medical decision making process.
