Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Serrato "I believe in personalized care - offering multiple options and figuring out what is best for each patient. I believe that each patient is an individual and that they should have a say in their care and treatment options. With my ultrasound training I can offer a direct opinion about a patient's condition and what surgical approaches might work. I believe in trying to do minimally invasive surgery if a patient is a potential candidate"
