I view high quality health care as a basic right that all people should have, with equal access to medical services without causing undue burden to their finances or quality of life. This includes a compassionate approach to their care that is founded on evidence based medicine, and emphasizes disease prevention and wellness as much as prompt recognition and treatment of illness. I encourage patients to take an active role in their care and see my role as being an educator as much or more than a prescriber. Good communication, listening, and a patient centered approach foster this.
