Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Livermore III "I believe that every patient deserves to be fully listened to. I take the time to understand what the patient's perspective is regarding his (her) symptoms before recommending a treatment plan. Surgery should only be undertaken if it is really necessary and very likely to bring about major improvement in a patient's condition."
