Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Egel "I believe that every patient is entitled to the best possible outcome for their conditions and that they and their families should be treated with utmost  respect, compassion and support. Each patient should have an individualized plan of care and preferences and suggestions from patients and their families as well as cultural and religious beliefs should be intertwined with each plan.  I consider patient and parent education to be very important in order to have an educated and informed decision making process for care.  I also believe in a holistic approach to treatment of the body and support of emotional needs for each patient."
