Listen to your patient, for they are trying to tell you something. Communication with the patient is key to being a good physician, and I have pledged my career to being the person they look to for information. Too often physicians do not fully communicate with their patients or their loved ones and this leads to a frustrating medical experience. What sets Paloma Medical Group apart is our ability to take the necessary time to be there and support the patient.
I like to provide clear and meaningful explanations of the patients' medical issues in ways easily understandable and then support them in their options for medical care. I offer a spectrum of advanced options to manage serious diseases of the lungs and to those who are critically ill in the intensive care unit. At the same time, I have several years experience in caring for patients who are too sick or fragile for such options. Being able to offer conservative options, which take into account the patientâ€™s comfort and symptoms above all else, is also a very important service to offer.
