Dr. Delahay's Care Philosophy
It is important to me to make sure my patients understand the problem, the treatment options and the long-term implications of each. I also feel very strongly that children and adolescents be included in any discussion of their condition and treatment. Their concerns are often quite different than their parents' and it's important to address them.
