I believe the body is self healing and the physicians role is to stimulate that inherent self healing process through all the modalities of treatment that are available. The physicians role is direct the healthcare team find the best treatments are care that is possible for each individual patient. I believe in a collaborative model of care in which the patient is active in their healthcare decisions.
