Care Philosophy

As a Family Physician who cares for geriatric patients, I believe that the patient must be at the center of the care my team provides. Frequently the definition of the patient includes the family and caregivers. I see the role of the provider as partnering as a health care advisor working collaboritively with patient and family for the best possible outcomes. I adhere to "best practice guidelines" as the foundation of the care. It is a privilege for me to care for patients.Read more
