Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sopko "The subspecialty of Interventional Radiology provides image guided, minimally invasive therapies for a wide variety of diseases and disease processes. Utilizing a comprehensive, clinically based practice, I work diligently to provide sound, evidence-based therapies for my patients. In addition, I also to seek empower the individual with a strong framework of knowledge about their particular disease and the potential treatment plans available to him or her. This level of care is only possible through well-developed, multidisciplinary interactions and thorough communication with both the patient and all members of the particular person's care team.

"What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you."

                                         -Ralph Waldo Emerson"
