The most important decision you will ever make regarding your health is the selection of a physician to oversee, and guide your medical care. Your doctor must be someone you can trust and one who has the time and patience to listen to all of your medical problems.

Finally, your physician should not only treat your illness, but place strong emphasis on preventing disease.
