My goal in my practice as an endocrinologist is to utilize my medical education and my more than 15 years of clinical experience in endocrinology to help my patients.
Some individuals have specific goals: improvement in disease status, reduction of risk and better overall health. Others just want to feel better. Regardless, all patients want and deserve to feel that they are being heard.
When patients prefer a straightforward application of evidence-based medicine, I use traditional methods of diagnosis and treatment. Other patients prefer to hear my recommendations and make their own decisions, and in these cases, my goal is to give them the information that enables them to make the most informed decision. I don’t believe that forcing my patients to follow a specific course of treatment against their will is beneficial, so I try instead to gently convince them what would be best for their health.
I believe that the physician-patient relationship works best when it is open and honest. I hope that all my patients will learn something and also feel better from our interaction.
