About Me

Care Philosophy

I see people as whole beings and I evaluate them on an individual basis. Each patient I see is someone's parent, spouse or child. I try to comfort them from the start, when the come to see me often times they are frightened, my job is to comfort them and get them through surgery successfully. I want all of my patients to know that they will always get the very best care from me.

He came to waiting room to speak to my wife following surgery and that is the last time we saw him. Never visited me in hospital nor did we see him...Read More

Won’t recommend him. Bedside manner was poor. Reputation from his previous patients and colleagues was negative. Should have listened.
