Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Dave "The philosophy of my practice in current medicine is Patient Centered Care. I believe in strong patient and physician relationship. It should be open, honest but above all, Personal. Every medical practice has it's unique standing, depending on population, community and location. I devote long time understanding patient's problems. This has helped me understand meaning of medicine, in current time and before. I thrive to put personal touch into medical care for my patient. I am open to comments and criticism, which makes me better as person but helps me make medical care better for next patient in my practice. I encourage open discussions and complaints. I honor patient's (and family's) right to make decision, but treat them with respect and dignity they deserve as person. "
