Care Philosophy

As a medical student I realized my love for surgery the direct action that could be taken to solve a problem. As a resident I realized that I also wanted the opportunity to develop meaningful relationships with my patients. Nothing allowed me to do this as much as breast surgery. My life had already been touched by breast cancer when my childhood best friend was diagnosed at 26. Her strength during that time in deciding what surgical treatments were best for her and all that she went through inspired me. It is something I continue to see in all the women I care for nowstrength and determination. I love helping patients understand the disease they are battling and make these choices for themselves. It is so gratifying to take care of these patients because most do well. I am lucky to share that with them.
