Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bishop "Patient-centric care, doing what is best for the patient – every time – is what motivates me to provide the highest quality of care. This is accomplished by knowing when surgery should be recommended, and by performing state-of-the-art surgical procedures, including minimally invasive surgeries. I enjoy working with patients to decide on a plan of care together, with mutual respect, kindness, and trust. This to me is the "art of medicine," which I hope to have the privilege of experiencing with every patient."
