Dr. Utreras' Care Philosophy

Dr. Utreras says...

I have to admit that pain management is a very serious and important part of medical management. And for that reason I am committed to educate my patients in the notion that pain management is not just the escalation of the use of pain killers.

I explain to my patients that pain needs to be understood in many ways. Pain is a fact of our liver, we must learn to deal with it, cope with it and sometimes live with it.

I am far from perfect but I look forward perfecting my art: medicine. Please, let me know how I can improve or change to make your experience in my office a better one.

I understand that sometimes I can be criticized for not doing what the patient has in mind or for not doing what the patient wants. But as I said in another part, I strive from the philosophy that I am here to do what is right for the health of my patients (based on the current knowledge and guidelines). Sometimes, however, doing what is right for the patient's health is not what the patient has in mind or expects. In that case I ask you to please try to understand my principle of care.
