Speaking of HealthCognitive overload: When processing information becomes a problemMarch 18, 2022
My patients will find that I use a cooperative approach — using evidence-based guidelines and recommendations, blended with their own personal values — to create a care plan that is specific to them. I present a lot of information and education during visits, and support shared decision making. Medications are used as required, but I also strongly encourage my patients to pursue appropriate and healthy lifestyle choices.
I am married with three great kids. I enjoy reading good fiction, music, hiking, camping and local sports. New jokes are always welcome!
