Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cason Jr "My care philosophy is to put patients first. What makes a good relationship between patient and doctor is doctor's availability and the doctor's passion. There's a unique relationship between a patient and surgeon in medicine, and I've done it a lot - I've had thousands of patients - and I'm very proud of the relationships that I've had with them."
