We encourage all of our patients to share the responsibility for their health, both in preventing disease and in treating existing disease. Prevention really is better than cure. Many of the more serious diseases can be prevented by a healthy lifestyle and without the need for drugs. Please feel free to discuss with us both your general health and lifestyle and to ask for advice. We keep a large supply of free literature on a variety of health topics. Patients are also encouraged to visit
