Philosophy of Care
I believe treating patients goes beyond simply looking at their diseases - it involves integrating their beliefs and preferences into a care plan that is a good fit for them. To achieve this, I encourage patient and families' engagement and enjoy working closely with other care providers as part of an interdisciplinary team.
