Cardiology | Male | 40 years old

It is much more important to know what sort of a patient has a disease than what sort of a disease a patient has. - William Osler. I love this quote because it summarizes my philosophy of care perfectly. It is important to treat the patient, not the disease, and not the numbers on the monitor. If the disease is not dangerous and does not bother the person, then the person does not necessarily need to be treated. I also believe in involving people in their medical care and their decisions. At the same time, I believe in personal responsibility and expect my patients to do their best with lifestyle choices. I tend to be somewhat conservative and will prefer a non-invasive treatment over a surgical one if there is the luxury of choice. My specialty, however, is surgical or procedure-based, and I thoroughly enjoy the challenge of complex procedures, especially when I know that patients are going to feel better as a result. When patients come back to office after the procedure and are happy at how much better they feel, the professional satisfaction that gives me cannot be duplicated.Read more

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
