Care Philosophy

I have been in Pulmonary/Critical Care Practice for more than 40 years. I have treated patients of all different socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds. I try to treat all patients with two guiding principles, 1) compassion and 2) empathy. I have been on the receiving end of compassion when a close family member was gravely ill and the oncologist came from his office and gave my relative a hug and asked how she was doing. That was a touching moment for me.
