Philosophy of Care:
My philosophy of care is simple: As a doctor you have to learn to take cues from the patient. When my patient has a problem, what is she looking for? For many problems there is such a wide range of options of what can be done. Does she need reassurance, suggestions for lifestyle modifications that might help her problem, medication, or surgery? As a doctor, I need to present the information to the patient and let her help me figure out the best choice for her.
