I believe that as humans we are always striving to enjoy everything that life has to offer while staying healthy in the process, and this balance is what I work towards every day with my patients. I am a firm believer that the doctor-patient relationship should always start first with listening to my patient’s needs, wants and goals. Only then can we set expectations and work towards change. I find that if we listen more as providers, our patients will tell us what they need and how we can achieve it together. I believe in creating a partnership, where I can utilize my skills and use the tools given to me to help guide and influence a healthier lifestyle.
