I am a very "practical" doctor. When a problem comes up, both my patient and I need to discuss it and work it out together. You will find that I listen, provide information, and will be honest.
As an emergency doctor, my strength is handling new problems. I am not the best resource for chronic problems or for medical problems that are handled in a doctor's office by getting a test and returning for medication adjustments, like thyroid problems or diabetes.
I don't prescribe antibiotics for colds. I don't think narcotics should be long term medications.
