Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Shukhman "My patients are the ultimate decision makers. My role is to let the patient know what is in the textbook, what i saw in my practice, what are the standards of care and what I can offer beyond these standards. I let the patient know my opinion about the steps that need to be taken or remedies to use, but, in most cases, it is up to the patient to chose.  

My prescriptions often combine medications with vitamins, supplements, medical food etc

In treatment, we will focus not only on anxiety, mood or addictions, but also on sleep, hormones, sex, appetite, weight, energy level, inflammation etc as they frequently are at the root of the problem. In my view, the best treatment should be integrative, comprehensive and, if possible, holistic"

Thanks to the honest, caring professional Dr. Shukman, I am alive and well.
