Philosophy Of Care

These are priorities in my practice:  

  • Carefully listening to my patient's needs, questions and concerns
  • Encouraging patient self-education
  • Partnering with my patient in decision-making
  • Viewing my role as a physician to be a patient educator
  • Working within a patient's financial capabilities

I believe in the importance of these factors:

  • Being sensitive to my patient's pain threshold
  • Focusing on the role of preventive medicine in wellness
  • Meticulous attention to diagnostic evaluation and therapy planning
  • Providing treatment in a comfortable and personal environment
  • Working with other specialities in the overall care of the patient
