Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cusano "As a physician I believe I best unlock my patient's capacity to heal by listening carefully with empathy and care. My job is to make a diagnosis and design treatment, but my role is to teach my patients about their diagnosis and treatment so that together we can use the best science and technology while taking into account the limits of that science and risks of that technology to accommodate each individual's situation and preferences. My patients direct their own care under my expert guidance."
