Philosophy Of Care

I believe trust and empathy are fundamental in the development of the patient-physician relationship and I strive to provide the highest quality of care in the most compassionate manner. This is achieved by taking the time to listen, understand, and provide education and guidance, especially when disease can be prevented. I view healthcare as a team effort, one that must include the voice of the patient. I am confident that by building a trustworthy relationship, we can develop a personalized treatment plan with the patients' best interest in mind.

I do have one gripe. It was empty walking to the dr's office. I walked past 2 ladies sitting at the desk right when you came off the elevators they didn't say a word. Then went past another desk, she looked up didn't say a word. Went to the very end to my dr's office and a sign was on the counter saying go to the front desk to check in. So I went to the one that I just past and said " where do I go to check in" SHE SAID YOU CAN CHECK IN RIGHT HERE!!!!!! What the heck!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She was so short with me and couldn't be bothered and just not nice. I was so thrown back. I wanted to say to her "Ya think you could of asked me" "HI! Can I help you? Are you checked in? You can check in right here". So yes! Not to happy. It was no big deal but there was not a single soul around and she looked right at me. Anyways, the dr. was great and the nurse.
