My prac­tice is based on patient-cen­tered med­i­cine. I strive to under­stand and incor­po­rate each patien­t’s unique beliefs, val­ues and health goals, while pro­vid­ing them with all the infor­ma­tion they need to feel com­fort­able with their treat­ment plan. This allows me to pro­vide my patients with indi­vid­u­al­ized care that will help them to achieve the best pos­si­ble clin­i­cal out­come and improve their qual­i­ty of life.
