Philosophy of care

Cure sometimes, treat often, comfort always.

I believe that:

  • A patient should understand the goals of their treatment and feel they are partners in their care
  • Treatment should not be worse than the disease
  • We must provide the best available therapies today but continually strive to discover even better treatments for tomorrow
