Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lin "I'm an infectious disease doctor, which means that I see patients who have illnesses caused by microorganisms, such as bacteria and viruses. Some of the illnesses that I see are very straightforward. Some of them end up being much more complicated and some end up not being infections at all. The way we try to figure that out is by really getting a good history, asking the patient what they're experiencing. Sometimes the clues come in the physical exam. If I can examine the patient carefully, I can find something there that can tip me off as to what's causing an illness. I certainly have the goal of trying to make patients feel better and feel healthy - and for every patient that means something a little bit different. If I really understand what the patient is trying to accomplish in terms of their goals of care, then I can really try to make a difference in their lives."
