Care Philosophy

I am serious about providing very personalized and excellent quality of health care to my patients. I focus on providing individualized and conservative treatment (i.e. surgery will be recommended only if there is a good chance it will improve your quality of life and only after less invasive treatments have been exhausted). At your first visit, you can expect a comprehensive and compassionate interview and examination; I will devote great attention and time to address your medical problems and develop a plan unique to your specific health, lifestyle, and desires. I will thoroughly explain medical problems so that you understand the disease process and your options.Read more
