“To me, we are building a relationship for life.”
As a doctor, I always look outside the box. I take an approach that considers the whole person and every aspect of their life. I always offer safe alternative approaches to my patients so they can choose what works best for them. To me, working together is key. I don't want to treat my patients in a way that makes them feel like they're just taking orders from me because I'm the doctor. This is a friendly, collaborative relationship where we come up with a care plan together.
What I most want my patients to know is that I will always help them devise a plan that is truly the best one for them, not just the one that I think is best.
I spend a lot of time with each of my patients, and I listen carefully to their concerns. I believe that taking the extra time to listen is critical in providing great medical care. To me, we are building a relationship for life.
