Care Philosophy

To be able to provide medical care is a privilege. I am very fortunate to practice my specialty. I strive to help. However, not every condition can be resolved. I seek to give you my honest opinion. My focus of practice is limited. This allows me to have greater knowledge of the conditions I treat. Even so, I can not know everything and will ask for help. My goal is to give you my full attention. However, the pressure and frustrations of the practice of medicine in today's climate may get in the way. I should have your confidence on every visit. If you do not feel comfortable about your visit, please say so. If you wish to have a second opinion, please ask. I will not be offended.
