“I recognize that there are many ways to approach health and wellness concerns, so I work hard to individualize care. Everyone’s story and situation is unique and calls for a plan that fits her social, economic, religious and cultural views. It’s important for a doctor to know patients on that level and work together with them to achieve their healthcare goals.”
