Podcast: Medical Decision Making

Welcome! and Thank you for listening. 

I am a plant based practicing allopathic physician.  I see people in the office, the hospital, the nursing home, at home and virtually.  I am at my best in person.  My job is to educate and to support.  I graduated in 1987 and I have been a doctor everyday since then.  My goal is to help people heal and do no harm.  Practicing, observing, learning, and questioning.  It is not an algorithm or a protocol.  Everyone has their own health journey and their own life journey which makes them unique.  AI cannot understand the life experiences of a patient and understand what they may feel is best for them.  

To do no harm is sometimes in the eye of the beholder.  Harm relative to what? Treat or not to treat? Who is ultimately responsible.  Medical decisions are never easy.  Everyone’s path is unique.  Health span is a partnership and the journey is what you make of it.   Find someone that helps you define the health journey that supports your wishes.  You have more control than you think you do.
