Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Loyola "I am a patient advocate and realize that their families are just as affected as they are by their illnesses, and consequently, feel that involvement of the families in patient care and decision making is paramount to the wellbeing of the patient. My patients are humans first and patients second. I treat them with respect and consideration and take the time to listen to them and respond to their questions. No question in my mind is ever stupid or insignificant. I always try to place myself or a loved one of mine in my patient's place; that allows me to hopefully make the best decision on their behalf. I am warm, caring and honest and that translates to my patient care. I do bring a lot of my patient's problems home, although we are taught to distance yourself from your patient's suffering. It is not ideal but inevitable for me. When a person comes to you and entrusts you with their life and their health problems, it places a tremendous responsibility on you."
