Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Scalise "The only way that patients can truly be involved in their care and the decisions surrounding it is to provide the tools and information each patient needs to understand what can sometimes be complex issues.  That is why we spend a great deal of time explaining both the condition we are dealing with as well as the rationale and treatments that can be effective in dealing with it.  This sometimes takes a bit more time but it is the best way to build the teamwork needed."
