Patient Care Philosophy
I believe in patient centered care and that listening to the patient is the first step in a successful doctor-patient relationship. I am invested in all aspects of my patients’ liver and gastroenterology care and approach problem solving with an open mind. I strive to provide straightforward and clear communication regarding the patient’s condition and management.
