Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cartwright "I believe that all people are created in the image of God and as such it is my responsibility to treat everyone to the best of my ability, regardless of the circumstances. I'm a firm believer in medical education and I will keep my patients and my colleagues as up to date as possible, which includes public seminars for bariatric and other types of surgery in additional to providing lecture material for students and other physicians. Also, good communication is a must in medicine as in life."
