Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Dale "I typically review what is diagnosis and the standard of care with patients. Would state reasoning for the standard of care after patient comprehends what is the usual care. I would be open to what the patients wishes would be for whatever reason. Would be willing to follow patients directive if no serious harm likely. Would educate on management of future problems that would arise from disease and management options. I emphasize prompt action plans to follows for anticipatied problems. I respects patients integrity and self determination, but need to educate to likely results of poor choices."
