Upholding Patient Trust

Trust is paramount to Dr. Matthew Rose’s approach to family medicine. Whether Dr. Rose is performing an in-office procedure or discussing a new treatment plan, his patients’ concerns and needs are his top priority. “One of my main strengths is matching a patient’s primary care needs with their healthcare goals. I engage in lots of shared decision-making with my patients until we both agree on a plan forward,” he says. By collaborating with his patients, Dr. Rose hopes to empower them to invest in their healthcare goals and see real change happen.

My favorite accolade is when patients tell me they trust me. That’s something that is earned, and I do not take it for granted.”

1. Why did you choose to become a doctor?

I decided to become a doctor so I could blend my scientific background with my enjoyment of social interaction. I transitioned from medical research to clinical medicine, and it just felt like a natural progression.

2. Why have you chosen this field of specialty?

I chose family medicine because it has the greatest
variety. We deal with everything from geriatric medicine and women’s health to LGBTQ+ medicine and urgent care. There’s not much we can’t do, but when we reach our limit, we can help get patients the care they need through a hospital or a specialist.

3. What is your best advice for patients?

Drink more water, try to have less screen time, get more
sleep, try to eat less processed foods, eat more whole fruits and vegetables, get in some daily movement, and wear sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher every day.

4. What is your philosophy when it comes to the care of your patients?

Patients have to be invested for change to happen. My philosophy towards patient care is to combine forces with patients to help them achieve their healthcare goals.

5. What is one of your happiest professional moments?

It is always a happy professional moment when a treatment I recommend for a patient works. Whether it’s a new medication, performing an in-office procedure, or some lifestyle modification a patient can implement at home, I’m always happy to hear something worked well.
