Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Harper ""The patient does not care how much you know "until" they know how much you care." Such "care" begins with genuine listening to the patient so as to "hear" what they need. The skills to diagnose and treat are not rare, but the art of treating the patient the way you want "your" family treated....that is my goal."
