Care Philosophy

Patient centered care means putting the patient first in every decision making process, and providing comprehensive care to meet patient needs. Establishing a trusting relationship with patients is crucial to understanding patient goals, values, and beliefs. Providing care extends beyond just treating the diseased organ, and is multi-faceted, encompassing the patient’s environment and safety. Above all, care is based on a shared partnership and open communication with the patient.
