Philosophy of Care

Providing the best care for patients is more than understanding a condition and providing state-of-the-art treatment. I focus on understanding how the condition and its treatment affects the patient and family to choose the best treatment option for each person. I involve the patient and family in the decision process, educating them on the condition and how well each treatment option can help them reach their goals.
