Philosophy of Care: 

A treatment plan is tailored for each patient after a thorough examination. I attempt to understand both what is going wrong and what is important in my patients' lives. This approach enables us to work together toward a common goal. Additionally, educating my patients about their symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment options is essential. I find that patients appreciate the information and become a partner with me in their treatment.

It is pretty amazing to watch patients get better. I get excited every single time it happens.

 

What advice do you give your patients for healthy living?

  1. Please take your medication as prescribed.
  2. Know that asking for help is NOT a sign of weakness

Philosophy of Care:

My philosophy of care is to treat patients how you would want your loved ones to be treated. During the initial appointment , a thorough psychiatric examination is performed and the results are discussed with the patient. This is very important  - as being aware of your symptoms will aid in getting better in the future. Finally, a treatment plan is formulated and discussed as well.

 

What do you enjoy most about being a physician?
Helping patients get better when they are unwell.

What advice do you give your patients for healthy living?

The best advice that I can offer my patients is to know when to ask for help and taking medications as prescribed. Both of these recommendations will aid in getting treatment sooner and feeling better quicker.
