Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Reister ""I believe the most important thing is to take compassionate, appropriate care of my patients. I would rather have people understand that I would like to help people rather than that I trained well. Medicine is fun, because you can have relationships with people. It was great to serve as a military surgeon before entering my residency at Fitzsimons Hospital. One can still feel a little altruism about serving our country.""
