Philosophy of Care
As a physician who treats patients with a variety of serious liver diseases, some which require a transplant, part of my job is to carefully explain the diagnosis and treatment in a way that patients and their families understand. I also take the time to listen to my patients, so that I can better understand their symptoms and identify the best treatment options for them. Patient care informs my contribution to liver disease research and provides me with the experience from which to teach physicians and students in training.
