Profile

Personal Bio

Treatment Philosophy

Understand the patient's needs. Why are they seeing me? What issues do they have regarding their medical care? Take the time to get a good history. Get to know the patient. Obtain testing that will prove or disprove a concept, but make it reasonable, cost effective and as safe as possible. Eliminate any unnecessary medications (especially natimicrobials). Formulate a plan. Take the time to explain your concepts to the patient. See if they buy in to the approach? Try as much as possible to get a collaborative approach to care in place. Educate the patient on what to look for and make sure they know they can see me again or contact me.
