Dr. Faust's Philosophy of Care
Beyond my years of medical training and experience, I also earned a Masters degree in Bioethics from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. As a result, I view each patient within a holistic and ethically appropriate framework. I believe that approach interjects an additional level of compassion, understanding and humanity into my relationships and dealings with patients, their family and caregivers.
