General Surgery | Male

Biography

My approach to patients is to act as a dispenser of information. My role is to assist the patient in understanding their condition, the relevant anatomy, the risks the condition poses to them and what options are available. These can include surgery, observation or medical therapy. Risks of potential complications are thoroughly reviewed so that patients can make the decision that is best for them personally. This involves sitting down and taking time to talk to and LISTEN to the patient.
