While training and education provide the necessary foundation for good clinical care, it is equally important to truly listen to the patient and to allow enough time during the visit to understand their unique concerns.
This approach is important in all areas of medicine, but perhaps even more so in psychiatry, where an understanding of one's symptoms and life challenges forms the basis for a successful therapeutic relationship, and directs subsequent treatment and care. I strive to provide this kind of care to every patient I see.
