I want to treat my patients as I want to be treated. That means honesty, respect, kindness, and helpfulness. I understand how stressful it is even for a routine exam.
I believe the patient should know everything before they make big decisions. Medicine is not a cookie cutter answer to every abnormality.
I am a doctor - a consultant for breast imaging. For any of my patients -- I am happy to review your images with you. I truly feel that no woman should leave our breast center confused or feeling like the doctor was not involved.
I truly love my "job" ! Please let me know how I can do it better!
