Care Philosophy

As a physician I am interested in finding as many of the possible sources of body malfunction as possible. After 52 years of practice I have come to the conclusion that Hippocrates was on track when he was quoted as stating "Look First To The Spine For The Cause Of Disease". That is why I want to see imaging of the spine first. Then I will investigate the rest of the body beginning with the digestive system. This is followed by psychology and then by invading organism evaluation.
