All of the doctors in our practice, along with our professional colleagues, participate in team meetings and collaborative thinking, which creates a “Culture of Safety”. Patient safety is the number one priority.
We frequently reevaluate our policies and procedures to determine what is working and what needs improvement. Every person working in our office is a part of the team, and each person plays a role in patient safety. We are proactive in reviewing our procedures carefully, with patient comfort and health in mind.
Patients are also a part of this culture of safety, in that they must communicate and be forthcoming about medical history and any drugs or supplements that are taken. Proper treatment and patient safety depends upon this information.
Don’t hesitate to ask any questions so that you fully understand everything about your procedure. We want you to understand and be comfortable with your plan of treatment, with the ultimate goal being a safe procedure and recovery.
