Dr. Shad's Philosophy of Medicine
Personal Whole Health is the best way to summarize my philosophy and approach to patient care. Personal Whole Health is personal, as every person’s path toward health and wellness is different.
In this innovative approach, physicians can serve as your guide to accompany you on this path by partnering with you to create personalized care plans and health goals tailored to meet your specific health needs.
Personal Whole Health is holistic and about all of you, not just your medical history or medication list. Each person ought to be treated like a whole person with complex needs in all areas of life including mind, body and spirit.
Moving beyond simply diagnosing and treating symptoms of disease, Personal Whole Health is about your health in the broadest sense. The emphasis is on prevention through the creation of a positive mental outlook, lifestyle changes and the use of both conventional and alternative therapies.
All of my professional and personal experiences have made me realize that medicine is both an art and a science. In addition to providing the most effective evidence based medicine, I believe the therapeutic relationship between the patient and the physician is equally important.
Therefore, physicians who choose this field and approach can serve as an educator, guide and life coach to help motivate you to live a healthier and more balanced life.
Above all, it is my goal to model good health so that I can practice what I preach to my patients, it is a process with continuous challenges that I look forward to sharing with you through this website as we all learn how to be healthy together over time.
