Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Amin "When it comes to illness, children are very resilient. For this reason, I often employ a "less is more" philosophy when I can. I like to utilize the idea of "watchful waiting" rather than jump to aggressive interventions whenever possible. When a child is ill enough such that this option is not available to me, I take great care in guiding the pateint and his/her family through the details of all necessary procedures and treatments."
