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.

    Dr. Brand will do my surgery for colon cancer. We talked about my concerns and recovery time, and I even joked a little about my flabby stomach!! He really put me at ease.
