I like to treat my patients as partners in care and believe in full transparency in discussing their conditions with them. I see my role as an educator and facilitator for my patients, so that they can make informed decisions for their medical care. For me, making a management plan for my patients includes not only patient’s clinical presentation and investigations but also patients’ and their parents’ underlying concerns, functional handicap brought by patient’s symptoms, and desire to treat the child in a holistic manner
