My goal is to make patients comfortable enough to share their story with me. I believe that disease is just one aspect of a patient’s life and there are several other things in their lives that can impact their disease and its treatment. This is especially true where you are dealing with illnesses like diabetes, obesity, hypertension, and cholesterol problems. I believe in a care team approach and I want to encourage patients to take charge of their health and participate in their disease management.
