Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Singer "My philosophy of care is very simple is treat every patient as if they were a member of your own family. My father died of lung cancer at the age of 70. Prior to that, he had battled lymphoma and prostate cancer. My mother has survived kidney cancer, lung cancer, and heart disease. I suppose it's fair to say that I have come from a family of patients, not doctors. The blessing is that I have experienced what patients and their families go through during times of illness. Caring for patients as if they were a member of my own family allows me to find the strength to face the long hours and stress of being a cardiothoracic surgeon."
