About Me

Care Philosophy

My goal is to give every patient the best available medical care, while also treating the whole person. I care about my patients' entire lives, not just their medical needs. I try to let each patient know that I understand life is very difficult at times, and sometimes even medical issues have to take a back seat. I want my patients to feel they can talk to me about anything at any time.
