About the Provider

Philosophy of Care 

The following two quotes by Sir William Osler, 19th century Canadian physician, sum up my Philosophy of Care: “Listen to your patient, he is telling you the diagnosis.”

“Care more for the individual patient than for the special features of the disease. Put yourself in his place. The kindly word, the cheerful greeting, the sympathetic look – these the patient understands.”
