Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. McShane "I believe that it is very important to listen carefully to the patient and to try to understand all of the contributing factors to her problem. The cooperation of the patient in the diagnostic and treatment plan is key, therefore it is necessary to ensure that patient education is part of the process. Accurate diagnosis will lead to a list of treatment options, from which the patient may choose, once the risks, benefits and effectiveness of each is explored. A holistic approach is best."
