Patient Commitment

I am passionate about
Your wellness

I take full responsibility for my health and for those that I care for.

Patient Commitment Statement

My health is important to me and my loved ones. I will work hard to care for myself. I understand that my physicians cannot help me if I will not help myself. I expect my physician to offer me her best advice based on her medical training. I understand that without all the necessary information, my physician cannot responsibly and safely treat me. I understand that, without my active participation, my physician’s ability to help me is limited. I understand that my physician is the consulting partner, I am the working partner. Working together, we can accomplish great things.
