About Me

As a surgeon in today's times one must never lose sight of the most important goal, the care and happiness of the patient. Ultimately this is what matters most and it was the idea of taking care of people which initially brought most physicians into the medical field. This has not changed today and it is what I strive for on a daily basis.....to truly take care of the patient.
