Simon D. Murray, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I've learned two things early in medical practice. The first and more obvious one was that physicians with an adequate amount of time to take a good history were on their way to providing good medical care. The second and less obvious one was that the best doctors were those who taught their patients how to stay well rather than those who waited for illness to arise and treat it reactively.
I affiliated with MDVIP because I saw how it would allow me to do what doctors actually do best - listen, analyze, comfort, educate and heal.
