During the medical consultation, the doctor gets to know the details of your symptoms in the context of your prior medical and surgical history. We strive to get to you know you, your symptoms as well as your prior treatments, your life style and your family history. A complete physical examination is performed followed by a discussion of your symptoms, possible diagnoses and any possible tests or procedure that may be needed to aid in your diagnosis to formulate a treatment plan. You may ask questions. The doctor welcomes your input and preferences in formulating testing and treatments to ensure that you are most comfortable with all plans.
