Philosophy of Care
I chose internal medicine because I wanted to take primary responsibility for patients with a broad range of medical problems. I have developed some long-standing relationships with patients by virtue of being at UC Davis and with this practice from its inception in 1988. I would describe my philosophy of care as compassionate. I try to give the kind of care I would want my own family to receive. I consider good communication and a moderate lifestyle with less stress most important to my patients’ health. I particularly enjoy the continuity of care with patients. It is gratifying to be able to restore a patient’s sense of well-being. The expertise available to us in all areas of medicine at UC Davis Medical Group will greatly benefit the community. There is good morale and camaraderie among our staff, which translates to a caring attitude toward our patients.
