Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Schwarz "1. I focus on establishing the correct diagnoses, rather than our all too common band-aid plan. 2. I follow our oath, " First do no harm". 3. All patients are screened with basic questionnaire forms; is there any depression or anxiety associated with the pain? 4. Then basic assessments for ADLs; activities of Daily Living. We are human, we make mistakes. Patients are not discharged for not rigidly following a plan, but we work together to improve. How can we help each other?"

I'd leave negative stars if I could. This doctor is a joke. After following ALL of this quacks recommendations, I still ended up admitted to the hospital. I was severely dehydrated.
