My philosophy is that "the best way to care FOR patients is to care ABOUT your patients". And I do deeply care about the safety and the well-being of each and every patient who has entrusted me with his/her health. It is a privilege and I take this responsibility very seriously. Only the best care, and only when it is truly necessary.
