Accepting new patients

Most patients that walk into our clinic always ask the same question: "Why, Doc, did you choose colon & rectal surgery?!" The answer, while sounding very simple, is very true: to help people and make their lives better. We understand that most people who come to my clinic do not always want to be there, so we try our hardest to make it an environment where patients are comfortable talking about such a sensitive subject, and to make them feel that we are here for them to make a part of their lives more manageable and improve what we can to be best of our abilities. I chose colon and rectal surgery because I am able to treat a wide range of disease processes from benign disease to malignant disease, which ranges from medical management to surgical management. I perform a spectrum of surgical interventions from colonoscopy, to office procedures, to outpatient anorectal surgery, to larger laparoscopic and robotic abdominal surgeries. The thing I treasure the most about my practice is that I consider my relationship with my patients a partnership where we work together to get to point B, and that I can offer them a safe place to address their concerns about such sensitive subjects.

Care Philosophy

My approach to patient care starts with just education about their disease process and providing them access to trusted materials that they can process and read on their own time. I am not one to force my opinion on patients as to me, our relationship is a partnership where we work together to come up with the best treatment plan for him/her. I value a patient's input and expressing their concerns, time constraints, extenuating circumstances so that we can reach a common goal. 

I do my best to communicate with patients directly regarding results and next steps in medical and surgical management. I believe that if they have trusted me with their care that is it my duty to provide the best management I can directly to them.

Patient Comments (1)
She was very thorough, knowledgeable, and personable. One of my best experiences at a doctor. She understood my reason for the visit, listened and answered all questions. She also provided me with a list of what to do and where to get the items on the list. When a doctor give you a lot of great information it's really nice to have it all bullet pointed out afterwards and that's what she did. I definitely recommend her! She also squeezed me in for an urgent appt.
