Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Phelps "I listen to why a patient has come to me for advice and treatment. With my patient's history in mind, I work to find a solution to their problem. After careful consideration, and a diagnosis or plans for future testing or treatment in mind, I work with my patients to determine what will best suit their needs. I always keep my goal of maximizing quality of life at the forefront of discussions with my patients. "
