If I could share one insight on wellness…
“Tell your doctor about more than your specific illness. Knowing you and your history helps your doctors treat your illness and develop a plan to keep you healthy. Medicine is much more than treating symptoms; it’s about treating people. It is the relationship with a patient that is most important.”
Patients want to know that I care, before they care what I know. This means I spend the time necessary to truly understand my patients’ needs, goals and lifestyle so we can work together to do more than just treat illness—we create a plan for personal wellness.
