I believe that physicians and their patients are partners that need to work together to promote health and wellness. My job is to educate my patients so that they fully understand why I make the recommendations I do, and also so that they are more comfortable and willing to take charge of their own health. In turn, I want my patients to be honest with me and openly share their concerns so that I can better understand their individual needs and so we can work together as a team. I want my office visits to be conversations. I am a people person and I want to get to know my patients and families on a personal level. I also want my patients to respect me as a person, too, and understand that I also go to doctor's visits and sometimes wait. I ask for patience when this happens at my office and know that I look forward to our visit together.
