Patients will come to see me not only for their medical conditions — such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, asthma — but also to try and keep themselves healthy. I’ve had asthmatic patients who didn’t understand exactly what asthma was. They just knew that they were taking those medications. So it really has been a primary goal of mine to try and educate patients so they can know what it is, why they’re using these certain medications, what medications to use under what circumstances, as well as making sure that they’re eating the right way and avoiding things that they need to avoid and doing exercise, because I only see patients so often. There’s large gaps of time in between. So if a patient is educated in knowing how to manage their condition, then I think they’re better apt to go ahead and try and manage it more appropriately. It’s always a wonderful feeling when people come and express how much they enjoy me being their doctor. It’s always very touching to have someone say that.
