Care Philosophy

"I practice using Modeling and Role Modeling Theory (Erickson, H. et al, 1983). The first step is to develop a trusting relationship with the patient, & promote a positive orientation, including promoting client control promoting the development of mutual patient/provider goals. I believe it is critically important to include a thorough Review of Systems, as an essential part of diagnosing patient problems. This philosophy is difficult to accomplish with short patient visits, however, developing a picture of the patients' lived experiences is possible with mutual goal setting."
