Biography

Quality patient care requires careful listening to the patient’s own story of their problem, so as to understand the concerns and goals for care from the patient’s perspective.   For care to be effective, the patient must remain an active partner - within the entire health care team.  The best quality care requires going the extra mile to obtain the best possible understanding of the patient’s condition.  But one has to be honest and say “these things I don’t know” when the current limits of medical knowledge have been reached.  My practice of medicine is dedicated to pushing back those limits.
