Patients Seen: Adolescents and Adults

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.
