His personal medical philosophy is that you have to listen to the patient, as they will tell you what is wrong with them. He does not tap on the computer while the patient is in the room, as he cannot pay attention to both the patient and the computer at the same time. He believes medicine should be involved in a more personal kind of caring. As such, all phone calls to him are returned the same day, and after-hour messages are relayed to him at 7 AM the next day. He has same-day appointments, and an attentive medical staff able to handle all serious issues.
