Patient Care Philosophy

I love providing primary care because it allows me to get to know people. Once I know a little about someone’s life, I can help them figure out what may be going on medically that is preventing them from feeling their best. Then we can try to solve practical problems together. Every day I get to teach and I get to learn.
