    Philosophy of Care

    My practice philosophy is centered on caring for the person: one's whole personhood, one's physical soundness and psychosocial well-being. I treat my patients as if they are my own family. I ask myself, "How would I treat this person if s/he was my mother, my father, my sister or my brother?" This philosophy comes to life through respect, honesty, and genuine concern for them. I start by listening carefully, and making sure that the patient is an active participant in his or her health care.

    The best outcomes in health care are achieved when the patient and the doctor are in a partnership working toward common goals. This requires patient empowerment and an active advocacy for the patient's well-being. Also, this entails a sense of shared responsibility and accountability between the two. Education is key. Well-informed patients are better equipped to live healthier, happier, and more fulfilled lives.

    To ensure that I am providing up-to-date health education information and treatment, I dedicate myself to continued reading & research. I stay abreast with the quickly-evolving landscape of medical science.

    I am also receptive to integrating alternative/complementary therapies in my care of patients. As with traditional western medicine I rely on an evidence-based evaluation of their potential benefits.

    Further, I believe that my role includes being a patient’s advocate, a responsibility that is needed in the face of an industry that is increasingly more complex to navigate.

    Ultimately, I view my profession as a vocation. In essence, it is adhering to the principles that originally called me to dedicate my life to the practice of medicine: respect for human dignity, kindness, consideration for others, and hopefully, advancement of the human condition.
