Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Vallance "I became a surgeon because for me, it is the most challenging and rewarding profession of all possible choices. My surgical training was with the US Army. I showed my surgical skills while serving as a general surgeon and trauma surgeon at Ireland Army Community Hospital (Fort Knox, KY) as well as with the United States Army in Somalia. I very much enjoy my profession and the positive impact it has on my patient's lives. It is my mission to provide my community with the best care I am capable of. My practice philosophy is to spend as much time with each patient as is necessary while asking questions, listening to their concerns and explaining to them the treatment they need to get better and back to their life. The well being of my patients is always the most important agenda of my day."
