IF I COULD SHARE ONE INSIGHT ON WELLNESS…
Take the time to carefully think about your health and well-being. Do you have healthy habits? Do you give yourself time to relax and enjoy life? What are some things you can change? What do you need help with?
In my view, maintaining your overall wellness is an ongoing challenge and your physician serves as your resource and partner. I encourage you to consult your physician and to be comfortable discussing any health-related issues with them. Great things can be achieved through a successful partnership.
MY PATIENT CARE PHILOSOPHY
Knowing that over 70% of illnesses are caused by poor lifestyle habits, I take the time to thoroughly evaluate my patients beyond the basic physical. I look at their work/life balance, dietary intake, exercise habits and how they are coping with situational stress. This allows me to tailor a plan to help them adjust to whatever obstacles they face throughout the aging process.
With the goal of helping my patients realize what they need to do maintain both their physical and mental health, I am always looking for new practices that focus on “health span” and longevity. By integrating recent research and discoveries into my practice, this allows me to offer the best care to my patients.
TRUST IS KEY
I’ve had the pleasure of practicing long enough to realize the importance of a trusting patient/physician relationship. I consider it a privilege to provide care for my patients and it is a responsibility I do not take lightly. I focus on collaboration and shared decision-making because in my experience, it always yields the best results.
