I work to engage the patient as an equal part­ner in their care. I feel that my duty is to inform the patient in a car­ing man­ner of all the options that are avail­able to them. I then strive to active­ly assist the patient in arriv­ing at the best treat­ment pos­si­ble. I believe that an active and engaged patient makes the best patient, and that this involve­ment of the patient in their own care will lead to the best outcome.
