Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

My philosophy is simple: the best-informed patient has the best outcome. It is my responsibility to provide you with a clear explanation of your diagnosis, based on all the information. Once we have a diagnosis, the treatment options are more obvious. While surgery is an option, it may not be the best treatment initially. Non-surgical treatment may be most appropriate initially. I practice evidence-based medicine, using the most appropriate technique to have the best outcome.Read more
