Efficacy. Endurance. Education. Empowerment.
4 simple concepts that define what I do.
When was the last time you wanted to go see a doctor? Really wanted to, just for a good time? Like everyone else, you’re probably going to the doctor because you are unwell, and ready to start being well again. As one patient put it,”sick and tired of being sick and tired!” You want answers, and you want solutions.
So picture yourself at the doctor’s office. Did you have the time to tell your entire story? Are you secure and confident that you have been well understood? Did the doctor take the time to explain your diagnosis, what it means to your life, and how it might have happened to you? Did she allay your fears and collaborate with you on a multifaceted plan of action that has the potential to turn your health around? Did she address every part of you that might be keeping you from healing–your physical body, your chemical balance, your emotions/soul, your mind, and your relationships with the people and things around you–assigning a role to each part in getting you back to wellness? Did she make you an active participant in healing, and guide you into your maximum self-sufficiency?
This may all seem too good to be true, but it’s what my patients are saying about working with me. I’m not what most people picture when they envision a typical doctor. I am a teacher and a partner in health. I have an uncanny affinity for uncommon solutions. I have a skeptical but open mind for new scientific knowledge. I know you will learn something when you come talk with me, even if you feel you’ve heard it all.
Because of the 4 concepts that are integral to my practice, I don’t accept just anyone as a patient. You have to want to get better. You have to be open to change. You have to be willing to do your homework. And you have to be open to optimism. Maybe not quite optimistic yet, just considering it.
Hope to see you soon!
