Care Philosophy

Most of the patients that will be referred to me will be mainly to deal with patients that are coming for a second opinion, or for special issues. The special issues might be in the area of complex thyroid problems - especially might come with overactive thyroid, underactive thyroid, presence of nodules in thyroid that there might be that concern that the patient might [be] harboring malignancy in this nodules, or patient that already developed full-blown thyroid cancer and coming to ask questions about the management of this disease. Medicine is considered to be [a] very complex field, and it is. But the bottom line of a clinical doctor is that he is a problem fixer. He needs to understand the problem, and then he needs to fix the problem. This is where we need to aspire the most.
