Demetrios' philosophy  on health, preventive medicine, maintenance and recovery is that ultimately the power lies  within the patient. He believes that medicine and healthcare should serve as a tool to empower people to take control of their health rather than be a crutch for them to have to lean on. In a way he considers himself a middleman between the patient and their desired goals.
