Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

I choose to spend time with my patient and to hear what they have to say about their ailments. I find that patients seem very relieved when they are given the opportunity to express themselves. I try my best to give patients a detailed assessment and plan before they leave the office in a printed note form. I like patients to be as informed about their condition for which reason, I try to give patient handouts and guide patients to acceptable sites for patients to obtain information needed for their condition.Read more
