Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Fender "I choose to practice medicine to be an advocate, confidante, as well as a trusted friend that patients can turn to for some of the most difficult things they face in life. A physician must be able to listen, understand, reassure and provide trustworthy answers and advice to patients as they open up their lives to their physician."
