Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kagan "As a patient must put your trust in the hands of a surgeon who has your best interest in mind. If Dr. Kagan doesn't think you need a procedure or that it will not give you a significant improvement he will tell you. In fact, Dr. Kagan routinely turns away about 25 % of patients for this matter. Dr. Kagan will always give you an honest opinion about your condition and the best options for personalized treatment. We look at the relationship with every patient as mutually beneficial and long-term."
