Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

Old doctor-patient relationship: If you trust your family doctor, he treats you like a family (he answers your call when there's emergency, he sees you at the emergency room, he sees you late in the office as long as you can wait patiently, he talks to you when there's family tragedy) With HMO & ObamaCare it becomes "provider-consumer" relationship. Show respect to your doctors & you will get more in return, "personalized medicine".Read more
