So many of our behaviors — and even thoughts for that matter — are influenced by the families we grow up in. So I think if we’re really going to take care of people and really understand people, we have to understand them in the context of their families. And I think that helps everybody involved. I think a great example of this is childhood obesity — which is such a big problem, it’s a growing problem. You have to really address it in the context of the family. In general, I think my philosophy is that it’s a partnership, and I’m really a consultant that helps a patient to make their best decisions. What we need sometimes is somebody to help us figure out what our goals and priorities are, and how do we break that down into meaningful actions and achievable actions and steps that we can follow.
