Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Shamani "I believe that the Patient-to-Physician relationship is key to having better health outcomes. With our team work and integration to your health; making almost any change is possible.

My first focus is understanding my patient's concerns by listening beyond the words spoken. That helps me to recognize what is unique about each patient and how their care can be delivered effectively.

I am trying to be a student of life learning from my experiences so to make myself a better person and provider. I am able bring to the table a whole panel of different services to my patients.

I believe a health lives on both the inside and the outside of our beings. I focus on the whole person, not just the indication or Chronic Illness. I try to get my patients to a point of sound mind and body; so they can focus on their "Self" to gain the confidence in their health and their bodies."
