Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. McGowan "In his practice, Dr. McGowan remains focused on the most important person in the room: the patient. There?s a risk, he explains, of an older adult?s voice not being heard. And it?s vital to listen to their individual wishes and desires. ?You have to be sure to address their concerns, the reasons they have come to see you, first. Then you can turn to the other problems that might need attention.""
