With the complexity of health care today I think everyone needs a partner who will take the time necessary and has the breadth of knowledge to 'connect all the diverse data dots' for a comprehensive, detailed view that makes sound scientific sense. That's the basis for a successful treatment plan or health maintenance strategy.
I'm very grateful for the opportunity to practice a clinical model that permits me to take as much time as necessary to really get to know the patient, dig deep into researching underlying causes and unite all the available information to see the whole picture. I also feel that everyone needs a personalized 'owner's manual' for their body based on scientific principles for sound guidance in health and lifestyle choices. Success or failure can hinge on knowing which questions to ask and taking the time to find the answers.
