Having been in private practice for almost 25 years, my philosophy of care focuses on respect, professionalism, and attention to detail in order to provide the best patient care possible. I strive to respect my patient's time by keeping on schedule and focusing my attention fully on them and their concerns during their appointment. I respect their opinions and encourage them to be a partner in decision making when considering treatment options. Attention to detail is vital to providing the best patient care and running a professional, reputable organization. Whether it be thorough and complete skin exams, follow up, continuing education, or efficient business operations, my staff and I make every effort to give each patient the respect and attention they deserve. I want my patients to feel confident they are receiving the best dermatologic care.
