I love family medicine for the opportunities to develop long-term relationships with my patients. It takes time to get to know someone, and doing so allows me to be a compassionate health and lifestyle advisor. I encourage patients to explore the relationship between their mind and body and learn how it affects their healthand how improving both can bring them a better quality of life. In addition, I appreciate how family dynamics influence health both in general and in individual circumstance. I use evidence-based medicine in clinical decision making and make screening and preventive medicine a priority. Good health outcomes can come from both good medication management and from lifestyle changes; my job is to help patients find what works best for them.
