My approach is simple. Listen to the patient. Give them the time to explain their condition or concern and we work together to understand what needs to be done. Sometimes the choice is not easy but the information is always presented to the patient.
Medicine and helping others has become a passion of mine that has also become an art that is always evolving. Patient have said I am "different" from the other doctors they have been too. We stay current with the medical literature, have honest conversations about your condition and decide together how to treat it.
