Care Philosophy

When providing care for my patients, we work together as a team. It's important that they not only understand what we are doing, but why we are proposing a particular course of treatment. Involving patients in the decision making process helps us provide a superior level of dynamic, individualized, and compassionate patient-centered care with the utmost respect and understanding.
