Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Dunham "My first role model was my mother. I remember as early as age 5, I always wanted to be a doctor. My mom grew up in Chicago, and she was a person who was very interested in taking care of people, helping people who were ill. In those days, there were not a lot of opportunities for women in medicine, so she went into nursing. But she was really my role model, and she's the person I looked up to the most and inspired me to try to help people when they're ill. It's important for us to be nonthreatening. For example, if you come in and - a lot of patients I have are doing unhealthy things. Maybe they drink too much. They smoke too much. They're overweight. And so I think if you take the approach that you need to stop doing this, that's stressful for people. And so, while that may be true, I think the better way to phrase it is say, If you're able to stop smoking - and we'll give you the tools to help you stop smoking - we can really add years to your life. I think it's our responsibility to make it as unthreatening as possible - all the while, though, trying to address the issues that need to be addressed that will help them live a longer and a healthier life."

Patient Comments (2)

Relatively no wait. Dr. Dunham took his time discussing all of my concerns and gave helpful advice. Not judgmental at all. Very personable. Was not rushing to get to his next appointment. This man was meant to be doctor. Quick response to question I posted on MyChart a few weeks later.
