I believe patients and their physicians are equally responsible for the maintenance of the patient's healthcare. A psycician must be able to listen to their patients and expect their patients to provide complete and honest information about their medical history and present symptoms. The patient should expect a complete, non-bias diagnosis and treatment plan from their physician. My philosophy of treatment is based on my honesty and desire to help in the care of my patients. I recommend a conservative, evidence based treatment plan unless more invasive procedure are required to either diagnose or treat the patient's condition. Communication and mutual trust are of paramount importance. An open mind and willingness to compromise is required of both patient and physician. Otherwise both parties my become an impediment to overall patient care. The only improper question is the question never asked. Truthfulness and honesty is the keystone of the patient-physician relationship.
