I am an internal medicine physician, and I also practice geriatric medicine. I focus on preventive care and making sure that patients that are healthy remain, healthy, independent and functional as long as possible. And for those who are not, I typically treat diseases like hypertension, diabetes, thyroid disease — a lot of the typical diseases that an internal medicine doctor will treat. I work as someone who informs the patient — I provide different alternatives — and we decide together what is the best way to proceed about a problem. When you take care of patients sometimes you have to look more into things like the overall functioning of the patient. So I would consider it a success if someone — after seeing me and implementing the plan — becomes more independent and their overall quality of life improves.
