Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lilly "I make every effort to treat each patient with respect; to give each patient the type of care I would want for my own family. I balance the latest advancements in technology with personality. When my patients need surgery, I enjoy giving them the best possible outcomes, mixed with a "bedside manner" they will want to tell their friends about.
