Patient Care Philosophy

I believe in a partnership between the patient and the doctor, where the goal is to treat the whole patient, not just the disease. I like to combine the best of conventional Western medicine with complementary therapies such as nutritional counseling,herbal therapies and mind-body techniques [hypnosis and guided imagery] that have high quality evidence supporting them. I  also believe in health promotion which is just as important as treating disease.
