Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

**On Leave until 9/1/2013** I believe in communicating what the diagnosis is, what treatment options are available, and coming to a joint decision about surgical care. Patients are frequently very afraid of surgical procedures, and I feel part of my job is to help them understand operations and recovery, so they feel more comfortable and in control. I believe that emotional support is just as important as physical treatments and try to provide what I can, individualized to each person's needs.Read more
