I strive to understand how an individual's medical condition impacts them and their ability to effectively function in their family, community, and work. I then design a treatment approach that addresses all of these components, with the goal of improving my patient's overall quality of life. I believe it is imperative that patients play an active role in their health care and that we work together as a team.
