Lis­ten­ing is an essen­tial part of my job, as it allows me to bet­ter under­stand my patient’s symp­toms and how their med­ical con­di­tion affects their qual­i­ty of life. I believe in tak­ing a col­lab­o­ra­tive approach with each patient, so that they feel empow­ered and involved in their care. To do this, I strive to edu­cate my patients on all aspects of their med­ical issue and ensure I have thor­ough­ly answered all of their ques­tions. I want to ensure that they ful­ly under­stand their diag­no­sis and all avail­able treat­ment options so that we can select the best pos­si­ble plan of care that takes into con­sid­er­a­tion their lifestyle and goals.
