Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Patil "I believe that patients should direct the care that they receive. I am a believer in treating patients as I would a family member or friend. I see my role as an advisor, guiding patients on difficult decisions and rendering opinions that are based on research and expert based opinion (better known as "Evidence Based Practice of Medicine"). I also believe in minimally invasive management of diseases, utilizing endoscopic procedures and advanced, therapeutic endoscopy as a tool when conservative medical management fails. I do not believe in pushing medicines on patients, if other alternatives exist. I am a believer in "less is more". At the end of the day, we all want what is best for our patients, and many of us go about that in different ways. I believe in efficient, cost effective, evidence based practice of medicine. I am also a firm believer in "telling it like it is" and not "sugar coating" the problem. I believe patients have a right to know what to expect with their condition. "

This physician will tell you he is "ONLY an endoscopic physician, and if interested in treatment for IBD, or anything else, should look elsewhere!" Wish I would have known this prior to seeing this doctor. He never once put a hand on me to examine me in 4 exams, and was always in a hurry to leave...more
