I work with patients to set achievable goals and use regular assessments to monitor progress. We build on our successes to motivate patients to achieve results.
When I am meeting with a patient for the first time, be it for pain management or weight loss, it is important to determine what the patient's motivations, fears, and expectations are so we can work together to create an effective plan of care. Working together to find simple lifestyle modifications, be it in exercise, nutrition, or stress management, that the patient can easily incorporate into their lives is essential for any meaningful, long term changes in health.
