Philosophy of Care
I enjoy internal medicine because I see a wide variety of personalities and medical problems. At the same time, the field is focused enough that I can keep up to date on the latest developments and provide the best care for my patients. Being a good physician requires me to be at different times a scientist, counselor, detective, listener, advocate, technician, and ethicist. The trick is to fine-tune my role based on each patient's situation at that particular time.
I believe that good listening is one of the most important skills a doctor can have. I care about my patients as people, not just a collection of medical problems. I encourage patients to respect their bodies and know when to seek help to develop healthy habits that can last a lifetime. I value my affiliation with UC Davis and its wealth of resources, staff and facilities as a way to connect my patients to superior support whenever they need special medical care.
