Philosophy of Care
I chose family practice because I desired to treat a wide variety of disease processes in patients of all ages. It is truly my hope that all physicians practice medicine with compassion, concern and dedication. Listening to the patient, I believe, is the key. I try to keep things as simple as possible in working with patients. I follow the golden rule, and try to treat others as I would want them to treat me or my family. This really mirrors my philosophy of care. I feel strongly that the most important aspect of any patient's good health is that he or she takes part in the process. The best health care is achieved when the patient and provider work as a team toward common goals. UC Davis Medical Group enables me to give this kind of quality medical care and, at the same time, provide patients with access to exemplary medical facilities.
John Bias believes that while listening is key to good health care, the most important factor in any patient's well-being is his or her participation in the health-care process. Bias maintains that optimum health results from patient and provider working as a team toward a common goal.
