I tru­ly feel that every­one is respon­si­ble for their own choic­es and health and it is my job to give them the best pos­si­ble infor­ma­tion to make an informed deci­sion regard­ing their health. I also feel that pre­ven­tive health is extreme­ly impor­tant and am always will­ing to dis­cuss the best way for peo­ple to stay healthy and avoid medicine/​surgery as well.
