Steven Pouls, DO

Philosophy of Care

I believe that the majority of the chronic conditions that we face are effected by our lifestyles and the choices that we make. While helping to treat these conditions, it is also my desire to educate and empower my patients so that they may more effectively help themselves. If we can succeed in focusing more of our energy upon this, we usually end up having to focus less on taking medications.
