Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Speer "Kaiser Permanente: Our mission is to keep you healthy. Under-one-roof convenience, 24-hour advice nurse, and online access to manage your health - anytime.

I try to put myself in your place as I explain the problem and possible solutions. The best physicians help their patients by listening, avoiding tests and procedures that are unlikely to be helpful and by being honest. We get the best results when we put together what you know and feel about your body and my expertise of gastroenterology."
