My patients range in age from teenagers to great-grandmothers, and it gives
me great joy to help each of them live long, healthy and vibrant lives.
I recently had a patient tell me that she knew no matter what health crisis
she faced, I would be at her side protecting her. That's exactly what
I want all of my patients to be confident in: that I am at their side,
looking after them, working with them to achieve the very best outcome.
Prevention is important for all ages, so when a patient comes to see me
it is a priority to make certain that, from head-to-toe, we're doing
everything possible to improve or maintain their health.
I treat my patients as if they were my own daughter, sister, mother or
father. While many use this expression as gimmick, for me, it simply describes
the only way I know to provide care: with my whole heart. For instance,
when a patient told me she didn't understand the directions she had
been given by her kidney specialist, I called the specialist, put him
on speaker phone and the three of us walked through everything she needed
to do. To help ensure a patient's health and well-being, I am happy
to go the extra mile.
