Clinical Training

As a practicing physician, I’m always looking for new ways to help my patients. I am constantly attending training seminars and shadowing doctors to learn as much as possible.

My approach to medicine is this:

    • Don’t waste the patient’s time and money
    • Know how to properly assess a patient
    • Make sure the patient understands why they are experiencing their symptoms
    • Know how to explain a given therapy to patients
    • Know when a given therapy is indicated for a patient
    • Know when a combination of therapies is indicated
    • Keep things simple

I do my best to incorporate this philosophy in all my clinical trainings. The therapies and techniques I teach are the ones I have found to be successful in my own practice.
