Philosophy of Care
The treatment of lung diseases and disorders may be impersonal, but the care of the patient must be completely personal. UC Davis Health System promotes patient-physician partnerships that are founded on clear communication, mutual respect and earned trust. I will listen carefully and be your partner in the quest for an early and correct diagnosis of your problem(s). Empathy, to me, is not an occupational hazard. It makes a difference who is taking care of us when we are ill, and who will help us navigate the health-care system when we need it. Are you ready?
