Patient Care Philosophy
I believe in compassionate patient care, taking into account each patient’s individual needs and giving them a central role in their care. The best outcome is often achieved when patients and physicians work together towards a common goal that is specific to each patient’s needs and treatment goals. As a physician, I believe in not only providing patients with my professional guidance but also empowering patients with the information they need to then make the best decisions for themselves.
