Patient Care Philosophy
Since I entered medical school, I have pursued my personal mission to care for patients, their families and their loved ones. I endeavor to deliver the best outcomes for my patients that support both their health and well-being. To treat the whole person. My philosophy is that physicians and patients should work together as a team. Patients need to be listened to, have clear explanations about their conditions, be treated with concern, compassion and respect, have trust in their care teams, and contribute to informed decision-making. I hope to exceed expectations at every opportunity.
