I strongly believe in communicating the nature of my patients condition with respect to their diagnosis and the alternatives of treatment. While surgery may be required to correct a foot condition, conservative options are generally always available & are discussed so that a full dis- closure of a patient's options are available so that you as the patient can make informed decision on your own healthcare. While technology adavances, I employ new techiques & equipment only after they have been proven to be effective, safe & beneficial to insuring a better outcome for my patients. Experimenting with new texhniques & technologu should be left to the reserch facilities & test studies rather than a private practice. I treat my patients like I would treat my own family & friends with the same courtesy, respect & provision of information that one should expect when making healthcare decisions.
