Anthony Pham, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor
Patient Care Philosophy
Patient care should be customized to reflect individual needs, values, and choices. Since every person is different, I spend time with patients and the people they view as their care team to learn about their needs and preferences as well as share my medical expertise. By focusing on a patient-centered approach, I hope to create a healing environment of comfort, peace, and support that allows me to partner with patients to develop their personalized care plan and create a continuous healing relationship.
