My philosophy of care is holistic care. A patient can easily be seen or identified as a disease he or she has in the field of medicine. I try my best to treat patients as a whole and always consider what backgrounds, culture, surroundings, and people shaped the person he or she is today. That is probably one of the biggest reasons why I went into family medicine. By listening and getting to know a patient, I can fully understand the patient which allows me to provide the best care I can for the patients with positive outcomes. The trust I gain from building that relationship with the patient is extremely meaningful and valuable to my practice of medicine because I believe that is the foundation of good care.
