Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Shhadeh "Arubah Neuroscience Institute is made up of a group of highly skilled physicians who believe in collaborating together, as well as, with your other treating physicians to achieve the best possible outcome for each patient. We believe that a teamwork approach is the best way to enhance coordinated care and improve patient outcomes.We routinely put each patient at the center of his/her own care and treatment decisions. It is our goal to help each patient clearly understand his/her medical condition, what the treatment options can do, and what they cannot fix. We do spend all the time needed to address the questions and concerns of the patient, as well as the referring physician, and to that end we encourage an open-ended dialogue throughout the treatment process."
