Care Philosophy

My father once told me that physicians are privileged to enter the inner sanctums of patients that otherwise are not accessible to people in other professions; my responsibility to patients is to build trustworthy relationships and maintain utmost discretion and privacy. In daily interactions, my ‘patients come first’ in everything I do whether in scheduling their appointments or tailoring their treatment plan.  The second principle is ‘patients are always right’; that means I listen, empathize and validate and above all, I respect patients’ priorities, values and choices. Lastly, ‘all patients are equal’ because were all are children of the same God and deserve equal treatment and opportunity to access care in a healing, supportive and safe environment.
