My direct approach in treating and caring for patients is to fight fear associated with disease and focus on getting the patient well again. I educate my patients on their condition and give them an open environment to ask questions so they we may make the best medical decisions for them together. Patient involvement in their own care is very important and making sure they have a clear understanding and expectations are met. We pride ourselves in clear and timely responses to their questions and concerns.
