Shivi. S. Siva, MD | Board-Certified: Internal Medicine | Advanced Training: Gastroenterology/IBD
“I was drawn to Gastroenterology through a desire to help patients, engage in academic pursuit, and have a career that would enable me to pursue these interests while interacting with various disciplines in medicine, surgery and nutrition.
Shared decision making is a key component of my patient centered practice. I engage my patients in a process in which the patient and I work together to make decisions and select tests, treatments and care plans. This team work is based on clinical evidence that balances risks and expected outcomes with patient preference and values. Patients, once engaged in shared decision making, will learn about their clinical conditions and will be informed of their treatment options. My patients will be educated on benefits and harms of these treatment modalities. They will be given education tools to help them guide to evaluate each option and better prepared to discuss care with me their health care provider.
When I engage patients in shared decision-making, it improves patient’s trust and satisfaction with the care I provide them. This process builds a foundation for a long lasting and satisfying relationship between the patient and me."
