Erie V. Boorman, MD

My Approach to Your Wellness

Listening is the main tool in the art of medicine and is the beginning of good medical judgment.  Two aphorisms have provided me with good boundaries.  First, "No matter how you pinch or squeeze, the patient has but one disease," and second, "A patient can have as many diseases as he darn well pleases."  The first quote looks for a unifying diagnosis to simplify everything.  The second admonishes that everything is more complicated than it seems.  The art and the science of medicine are not really separate; both depend on listening openly, never prejudging, following acquired intuition for simplicity, but expecting complexity.  Teaching my patients and having them teach me is my great pleasure because it provides the key to moving from where our health is now to where we want our health to be.
