Whatever you do in life, make it a calling. I learned that a long time ago and I've always applied that philosophy to the practice of medicine. It is truly a privelege for me to be a doctor and it is equally an honor when patients choose me as their personal physician. I strongly believe that you simply cannot practice effective medicine without really getting to know your patients. Each person is unique with different goals and ideas for their own healthcare and understanding those goals is the key to an effective doctor-patient relationship. In my practice, patients and I make healthcare decisions together as partners. I want my patients always to understand why we are doing a particular test or why we are choosing a particular therapy. Having my patients fulfill their unique healthcare goals is and always will be my primary goal in practicing medicine.
