Diagnosis and Treatment Planning
My most significant responsibility is Diagnosis and Treatment Planning. This is particularly true when complex treatment is planned. Often this involves planning and coordinating with one or more specialists. The more well thought out a plan of treatment is the more smoothly it will be carried out and the better the long-term outcome will be.
After a discussion with you I will evaluate your treatment needs. Then I review all diagnostic material in light of your preferences. I'll then present you with a written report and we will have another discussion. This will explain your treatment choices and options, benefits and disadvantages and the cost. Then you will be able to go ahead with treatment with a complete understanding.
