Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Zimmerman "As physicians, both recent and remotely trained, the inherent premise of our "medical oath and contract to provide safe and meaningful care to the best of our judgments and training." And "...upholding the sanctity of life in a pure and resolute form, without corruption thus gaining the respect of all men for all time. " Whereby transgression of this practice will subsequently alter my fate and legacy." In a changing healthcare projection, these excerpts will remind the physician and the colleague about the successes and satisfaction of simply treating the patient."
