As a prac­tic­ing physi­cian, I build treat­ment plans along­side my patients through a shared-deci­sion mak­ing approach. I under­stand that each patient is unique and has her own goals. I like to start each encounter by ask­ing about their main goals for the vis­it; this allows us to work effi­cient­ly while also ensur­ing that her own con­cerns and ques­tions are addressed. I under­stand that there are many ways to prac­tice med­i­cine and thus I like to teach patients what the most updat­ed research and evi­dence shows, in order for them to be able to make informed deci­sions regard­ing their care.
