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.

Literally told me to my face that I was screwed because he wouldn't fill a paper for my medication. Said he doesn't get paid for that. Laughing at me as he said it. Such a cruel person.
