Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Viere "My goal is to explain to patients what is causing they problems in a way that makes sense to them and give them treatment options in a manner that they can understand. I understand I'm not treating a condition but the whole person and I strive to treat them in a way I would want myself or my own family to be treated. I want to give patients a realistic prognosis and understanding of what to expect from there treatment plan. I wil use the latest technology available, when that technology has proven safety and efficacy, in the least invasive way possible. "
