Philosophy of Care

I enjoy spending time educating each patient on their problem and all of the available treatment options, both conservative and operative. This enables them to be an enlightened and active participant in their care decisions. Each patient has their own goals and expectations. In my experience, shared decision making leads to a more pleasant medical experience and a better outcome.
