Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Zhou "1.I believe in treating you as if you were a part of my family. 2.I believe in treating the patient, not their imaging films. I will always review and explain the films to you, and will help you determine correlation between what you see and how you feel. 3.I will treat your symptoms in a holistic manner, and not just concentrate in your area of pain. For example, the root cause of some back pains could be leg impairment. Therefore, the treatment should include correcting your leg as well. 4.I will take into consideration the outside stressors that may contribute to your pain. This may include social, psychological, and/or family stress. Your pain may be a manifestation of problems within your environment. 5.I believe strongly in the Hippocratic Oath: Do no harm. I also extend this philosophy to include abstaining from performing unnecessary procedures."
