When I meet a patient, I consider this as the start of an adventure. It is an adventure to get to know someone over a long period of time. It is the intellectual adventure of solving medical puzzles and personal differences. I also like to practice preventive medicine, trying to match future health risks with current preventive recommendations. Health and disease are very complicated terms and unique to the individual. I try to approach a patient holistically to match her/his needs with their unique circumstances, beliefs, and disease.
