Philosophy of Care

I believe very strongly in educating the patient on their condition and WHY we are suggesting our plan, not just
handing out stern orders without explanation. Without a firm understanding of what their underlying process is,
and without a rudimentary knowledge of their issues, a patient will be far less likely to continue with a proposed
plan and follow up. I also think educating patients is necessary to allow them to make their own educated
decision on their care, because it is ultimately their choice if they wish to continue with my proposed plan of
action.
