Philosophy of Care
I enjoy getting to know my patients as well as caring for their medical needs. In my practice, I have the opportunity to become acquainted with the whole person and the entire family. One of the important tasks I perform as a family physician is teaching my patients how best to care for themselves. I encourage my patients to work with me in preventing illness by arming themselves with information specifically tailored to their needs. Developing long-term relationships fosters good communication with both children and adults. Using technology, such as a medical record computer database, helps keep information organized and allows me to spend more time with my patients. The excellent environment of UC Davis affords me this additional time to work out each patient’s concerns, and gives patients access to advanced medical treatment and information.
