Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. DeHart "I want to treat my patients as I want to be treated.  That means honesty, respect, kindness, and helpfulness.   I understand how stressful it is even for a routine exam. 

I believe the patient should know everything before they make big decisions.  Medicine is not a cookie cutter answer to every abnormality.

I am a doctor -  a consultant for breast imaging.    For any of my patients -- I am happy to review your images with you.  I truly feel that no woman should leave our breast center confused or feeling like the doctor was not involved. 

I truly love my "job" !   Please let me know how I can do it better!
