Patient Care Philosophy

I treat patients with the basic principle that each individual is unique. I do not believe that treating patients can be reduced to a simple set of algorithms. Patients with the same medical conditions do not always respond the same to different treatments. I work together with my patients to develop an individualized care plan with the goal of reducing symptoms most affecting their quality of life while respecting their core values.
