Philosophy Of Care

The individual to whom I am providing health care should feel that the care that is given is offered solely in the best interests of that individual. The individual should feel that they have been “heard” and that I have an intimate understanding of how the health problem for which they are seeking care is affecting their goals and aspirations in life. The individual should have the peace of mind that every effort has been made to deliver to them the best care possible to restore their quality of life.
