Philosophy of Care

I love the practice of internal medicine. I firmly believe that health care is a partnership — a "therapeutic alliance" between patient and physician. As a result, my ability to provide medical care depends critically on a patient's respect for and active participation in this relationship. I am proud to be a member of an organization like UC Davis, which heals with a passion and delivers on its promise to teach both patients and health care professionals.
