Patient Care Philosophy
My intention is to provide the best possible patient care and this starts by listening well to a patient’s concerns. I feel it is important for a patient to feel heard and then we can work together to formulate an appropriate plan of care. I strive to empower my patients by providing them with the tools and education to understand their condition and our plan for treatment.
