Dr. Glover's Care Philosophy
I support my patients' decisions by using a shared-decision making approach by taking into account their preferences, needs and values. I educate my patients' on how their wellness can have an influence on the success of a recommended treatment approach and how they can improve their wellness to achieve positive outcome.

I believe in providing safe, effective, patient centered, efficient, timely and equitable care to all of my patients. I like to use electronic education sources when available to engage my patients in their learning about their problem I adhere to the four virtues that every physician should have: integrity, compassion, self-effacement and self-sacrifice and the two core principles of medical care: beneficence and respect for patient autonomy.
