My personal health philosophy is one of taking charge of my body and avoiding medicine as much as possible. The doctor listens to my concerns and relates them to his vast knowledge of how the body functions. Then he explains those functions to me and offers natural remedies based on the known effectiveness related to the condition. I decide which remedies to pursue and then we observe whether it has been effective. I feel that the time spent with him in consultation and the remedies he has provided are well worth the money invested.
