Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Singer "Doctor - patient relationship is the centerpiece of a medical practice. The most fundamental part of that process if ability of the physician to diagnose, treat the patient with expertise, empathy and understanding.

A global, unified approach to diagnosis is fundamental to success. Mutual trust must exist between the patient and the doctor, and this relationship should not be breached by any external interference, regulation or a fiat.

Patient confidentiality must be respected at all times, and patient's dignity respected."
