Healthcare Philosophy I believe that all individuals should receive cost-effective medicine, i.e., that obtaining a detailed and appropriate history is the most important part of the phsyician's encounter with the patient. The physical examination is next important and laboratory studies have to be appropriate for the differential diagnosis and be ordered in the most cost-effective manner. Medical care in the United States is the best in the world; however, it has to be practiced in a very cost-effective manner.
