Care Philosophy

I treat my patients the way I would like my family to be treated. For me that means in a compassionate and professional way. Making sure that every one of my patients understands their disease process and the reasoning behind performing or not surgery. I am also a firm believer in a team approach when the situation requires more than one specialty for the optimal outcome.
