About Me

Care Philosophy

Patient care is complex.  My job is to help guide patients, teach and learn from them to assist in making big decisions.  Healthcare can be a very challenging area to decipher.  Who to trust, which opinions matter.  Honing in on what matters, and how to get the best care requires bedside manner and open communication.
