Philosophy of Care

Educating my patients about their diagnosis and surgery is essential in order to make them feel comfortable about their upcoming surgery. I actively listen to my patients and address all their questions regarding surgery and follow-up care so they understand we are working together. I believe the best care is achieved by involving all members of the patient’s healthcare team. By working with this integrated group we are able to provide seamless, efficient and compassionate care.
