Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Schultz "Listening to a patient's concerns is THE most important part of treatment. The "standard of care" may not be the appropriate care for a particular individual. Everyone is different and should be treated according to what is appropriate for THAT person. It's important for the physician to see him or herself in the position of the patient when making treatment decisions."
