Dr. Payne's philosophy of medicine was formed by watching his father practice medicine as a small town general practioner in west Texas. He believes the most important thing for a physician to do is to stop and listen to his patients. This philosophy allows him to correctly apply the science of medicine on an individual basis.In so doing the doctor patient relationship grows in trust and respect. This belief is reflected in his attitude to treat the entire patient viewing himself as a primary care doctor for women, following them from puberty, through childbearing years, and into and through menopause.
