Overview

I believe the role of a physician is to understand a patient’s health goals, educate him or her on treatment options and guide him or her to the best decision. Ultimately, clinical decisions should be made in partnership between the patient and doctor.

I am a strong proponent of evidence based medicine, i.e. looking to the research to inform decision-making. In fact, I recently authored the book 50 Studies Every Doctor Should Know. I also recognize that there is not always a right or wrong answer in medicine. Instead, the doctor and patient must consider the pros and cons of different strategies and decide on the best course. Sometimes, this involves non-traditional therapies while other times more traditional treatments are most appropriate.
