Care Philosophy

Effective communication is prerequisite for good medical care. Not all problems are easy to solve and not all clinical questions have answers. I will do my best to apply the science in my field to serve the interest of those patients for whom it can provide benefit. I can neither endorse or discourage "alternative" health concepts since, generally, there is insufficient science behind the claims that are being made, one way or the other.
