Philosophy of Care
Medicine seemed like a natural way to combine my love of science with an affinity for working with people. My training gave me a broad background in adult health issues, but listening is the skill I use to apply that knowledge in daily practice. Carefully listening to my patients, particularly aging patients, often is the key to good evaluation. I like to practice preventive medicine by emphasizing balanced nutrition, proper exercise and good lifestyle habits to improve health. When caring for the elderly, I try to balance quality of life with aggressiveness in evaluating health issues. I consider patient comfort and dignity to be very important, so I avoid being overly aggressive with technology when the patient and the family consider it inappropriate.
