Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Hodges "Sir William Osler, MD taught "Listen to your patient, he is telling you the diagnosis."  You tell me over 80% of what I need to know, so I listen.  I find a few surprises on examination, so I do a complete exam.  Tests add another 5-10% of the info, but that's not where to start.

I don't delegate.  I like to provide your care myself.  It's fun.    I don't delegate much to helpers.  I do refer to specialists when we need their expertise."

Dr. Hodges was my primary care physician for about 4 years. He was the best primary care doc I had ever had. Fabulous bedside manner and a great diagnostician. He was beyond helpful in many ways. Recommending a great cardiologist and a Physiatry doctor. Both excellent.
