Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gielda "It is my mission to ensure each and every patient feels genuinely cared for, while receiving evidence based treatment that best matches their situation, goals, philosophies, and values. I believe it is important to display the emotions that patients evoke in you.  People do not want to be cared for by robots, but by other flesh and blood humans that share their hopes, dreams, fears, successes, and failures. Listening is extremely important.  If we are to collaborate with patients in their care, we must understand their goals, values, and philosophies.  Only by understanding what is important to people can we truly individualize their treatment. I strive for the golden rule; treat others as you would want to be treated yourself. I will do everything I can to provide the most compassionate, up to date, effective, and transparent care possible. "
