Dr. Sequeira believes the exchange of knowledge between the physician and patient builds a strong relationship. “I realize there is an abundance of resources my patients may look to when they have a concern about a medical condition,” he said. “I encourage my patients to do their research so we can have a mutually beneficial discussion. In this way, we build a strong relationship and a better plan of patient care. It is always my goal to have my patient satisfied and see a smile on their face,” he added.
