Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Rideout "I believe in a thorough evaluation of a patients condition as being the best method of achieving the correct diagnosis.  Once this is accomplished, I believe it is very important to discuss the condition with the patient and their supporting loved ones in a way that they have a good understanding of what is going on.  From there, we can discuss options for treatment, the risks, benefits and outcome of each option so the patient can make a good informed decision regarding how they want to proceed.

In the end, it is always the patients decision in choosing how they want to treat their condition."
