Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cuevas "Through my journeys around the world, I have observed that the science of medicine is universal.   However, the art of medicine - the ability to see patients beyond their medical conditions - is a skill that cannot be taught, rather it is a discipline that I continue to cultivate from a deeper desire to provide respite and healing to a hurting soul.  My approach is to see my patients as unique individuals in their diversely rich backgrounds with different life journeys, and develop their care and treatment plan consistent with their goals and life values.  In addition to providing evidence-based medicine, I strive to deliver medical care that is comprehensive, goal-directed, empathetic, compassionate and personal. "
