Approach To Care

Dr. Joseph Van Camp approaches customers as individuals and tries to listen to their concerns and how a disease affects their lives. He makes recommendations for a care plan and then together decides on the best way to proceed for each individual. He believes both the customer and the provider need to feel they have made the right choices regardless of the outcome.
