Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sclafani "I come from a family of healers dating back more than 2000 years. I intend to honor that tradition by using advanced technology and developing new procedures to facilitate basic healing in a minimally invasive way. Time spent educating patients is well worth my efforts because patients' points of view are important. I listen because the partnership enhances my skills as a doctor and a person. Trust is a core value that is integral to healing. It must be earned at each encounter."
