Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Semel "Understand the patient's needs. Why are they seeing me? What issues do they have regarding their medical care? Take the time to get a good history. Get to know the patient. Obtain testing that will prove or disprove a concept, but make it reasonable, cost effective and as safe as possible. Eliminate any unnecessary medications (especially natimicrobials). Formulate  a plan. Take the time to explain your concepts to the patient. See if they buy in to the approach? Try as much as possible to get a collaborative approach to care in place. Educate the patient on what to look for and make sure they know they can see me again or contact me."
