My Philosophy of Medicine
|I am NOT accepting new patients into my practice at this time.|
My goal is to provide compassionate, evidence-based medical care that is accessible and affordable. Essentially, Plains Synergy Healthcare is a return to old fashioned outpatient medicine with the technology of today.

|My Philosophy of Medicine|
My philosophy of medicine is as follows: My role is that of an educator. Your health is very important to me but it is most important to you and you are the "captain of the ship." I am a consultant who educates you about your health so you can make informed choices. Together we negotiate acceptable treatment you are willing to do. I respect each patient's personality and needs, integrating holistic and traditional medicine while providing compassionate, quality heath care.
I provide patients with lots of handouts to reinforce what we discussed during the visit. I strive for continual refinement of patient care educational materials. Informed consent is always important, but especially so for psychotropic medications. I encourage patients to take an active and responsible role in their healthcare.
I am pro-choice and prescribe emergency contraception but advocate abstinence. I would like every child born to be a wanted child. I believe every patient's wishes regarding "code status" and end-of-life care should be known and respected.
