Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Parikh ""Treating the patient, not just the disease" Treating a patient?s spirit and dignity goes hand-in-hand with treating the illness. As physicians, we need to foster the patients? inner strength and courage to prevail the feelings of sadness and hopelessness. The drugs that are available to treat the disease are relatively standard across the country, but in treating the patient, we all have to break the mold of how we were taught and learn that the patient comes first. Integrative Medicine!"
