Philosophy of Care
I believe that good physicians are educators first and I truly enjoy the teaching part of my practice. It's challenging to break down complicated medical issues and work towards a shared understanding.
I don't think that successfully treating complicated medical conditions (or even simple ones) is possible without a partnership between the patient and the physician, and a successful partnership needs a mutual understanding of the task at hand.
