Our commitment to patient care and physician work satisfaction is what drives us to be the most trusted and relied physicians in our area. We emphasize on communication and rapport building skills, patient centered and solution focused interviewing skills, as part of our solution focused therapy, as well as systematic information management with agenda setting to improve patient compliance and treatment outcomes. Scaling patient readiness for change, assessing their difficulties and expectations, helps us negotiate the appropriate tasks for our patients.
