Practice Philosophy

I have been in practice for a long time. My approach to my patients has not wavered. It is important to treat the patient, NOT the X-ray; for instance, MRIs are often misleading and cause unnecessary surgery. I believe that it is a doctor's responsibility to try, in the time we spend with patients, to make them understand what has taken years for us as physicians to understand. If we don't know what's wrong, we should tell the patient. If we do know what's wrong, then we need to offer the patient a 'menu' of options for treatment including what we think is best for them. Many times all the patient wants to know is it OK to live with the discomfort they're having, and are they harming themselves in the future by doing so. I try to imagine every patient I see as a member of my family and treat them accordingly.
