PURPOSE OF THIS WEBSITE

 

More and more people are searching the Internet for better understanding of their healthcare problems. A person in pain may be searching for answers and possibly wondering why the solution seems so difficult to come by. Others may not be satisfied with the results of previous treatment or suggested alternatives. Hopefully, the following information will help you to achieve a successful solution.

Every doctor wants to answer all patient questions appropriately. However, some questions might need an hour of explanation to accurately communicate the doctor's philosophy of practice. Patients may have numerous questions, and lengthy responses are not practical in many clinical consultations. Patients are often unwilling to pay for a two- to three-hour consultation, and most doctors cannot devote that amount of time at no charge.

Good rapport is basic to a successful doctor-patient relationship. Essential to such rapport is a shared philosophy about the way a healthcare specialty is practiced. Questions, differences of opinion, and varying philosophies abound in the field of orofacial pain, headaches, and temporomandibular disorders (TMJ/ TMD). Patients should not assume that all doctors think alike merely because they have the same professional degree.

Modern technology and the Internet have increased the resources available to make easier, more informed choices. Information on a physician's philosophy of practice can help a patient clarify choices and decisions before committing to an appointment. The Internet now affords patients the opportunity to learn a great deal about their doctor and their disease.

The philosophy, background, perspective, research, publications, and office location of Dr. Allen J. Moses are available on this website. It is hoped that this information is helpful to the reader in making the proper choice of healthcare professional.
