“I see the practice of medicine and the care of patients as collectively both an art and a science. Through open, honest communication, creativity – and a drive to educate, inform, and guide – the relationship the physician fosters with both the individual patient and the community tempers the hard, cold facts and evidence provided by the latest research. All this is aimed at helping people accomplish their personal healthcare goals.”
