Team-Based, Patient-Centered Care
It seems most appropriate to start our blog off by diving into one of our core values here at East Meets West Health Centre.
What exactly is "Team-based, patient-centered" care?
Let’s break it down.
We have put together a diverse collection of professionals and practitioners with the goal of providing the most appropriate and complete care for our patients. No one person or profession has the knowledge or set of tools available to completely treat the complex human beings that we are. You need a team. Better yet, a team that works together and communicates with each other for your best interests. Which makes for a great segue into patient-centred care
This concept puts you at the centre of the plan. We work hard to ensure that your goals are being addressed in a comprehensive manner – using the most appropriate treatment or combination of treatments. If a certain plan isn’t getting the desired or expected results, we’ll do our best to inform and educate you on alternatives or the next step in treatment. There’s no pressure or obligation. We just believe that knowledge is power. And you can’t make a fully informed decision if you don’t know you’re options.
We’ve seen a lot of people who come into the office and say they’ve tried everything, but have never heard of prolotherapy or shockwave for musculoskeletal pain. They have IBS but have never been tested for SIBO, migraines but never looked into food sensitivities or hormonal dysfunction. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
At East Meets West Health Centre we’ve built a team around you. And we’re continuing to do so by bringing in a wider range of practitioners in order to serve you best. We are continually changing and evolving to serve you better.
For those that have been with us for years, you already know what we’re talking about. For those that have never been in, come see how we’re different.
