Care Philosophy

Listening to our patients and spending the time to understand their symptoms is the first step in formulating a carefully thought out diagnostic and treatment approach. I explain in simple terms to our patients their diagnosis and write out for them their diet instructions and medications needed. I review with each patient how each medication should be taken and for its duration. I take the time to answer all your questions. I personally return every single telephone call.
