Philosophy of Care
“I see each patient as a person whose mind, body, and spirit are uniquely and intimately intertwined, not as a collection of problems. Although the presenting concern may be a particular symptom, the answer is likely best discovered by appreciating the context of the patient’s overall experience. I try to use the best of conventional medicine and the best of alternative medicine to address each patient’s particular cardiovascular needs.”
