I view my relationship with my patients as a partnership. It is my duty to inform them of all the relevant facts and alternatives so that together we can come up with the best plan. To me, the best approach to care starts with genuine, one-on-one interaction between the patient and provider. We need to be able to talk things through and have open communication that involves both of us in the decision-making process. The ultimate goal is to better your health so you can keep enjoying life to the fullest.
