Care Philosophy

As a bariatric and general surgeon, I believe patients are happiest when they are healthy. From a surgical standpoint, I believe the best practice is to cure disease. Fixing the core problem allows the patient to thrive. I also believe patients need to be active decision makers and partners in their care. Care is one area I pride myself and my staff on; from the front desk through to surgical excellence you will know you are cared for-not only as a patient but as an individual as well.
