Learn about Dr. Glover

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 use active listening skills to make sure I have the full understanding of what my patient's concerns, problems and expectations are to accurately diagnosis and prescribe a treatment plan.  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.
