About Me

Care Philosophy

I feel strongly that listening to my patients is the most important aspect of the patient-provider relationship. Taking time to educate my patients about their disease is next. Patients should be empowered to understand and embrace their disease. I treat each of my patients like I would want my family treated. Communication with my patients is a vital priority.

I was getting chronic sinus infections that wouldn’t go away, no matter how many rounds of antibiotics.

They are condescending and lack any sort of kindness or concern for any patient I observed walk in during the hour and a half that I waited to be seen. I have never seen such rudeness that I watched...Read More
