Philosophy Of Care

I try to be respectful, open and honest to provide the best care possible.

These are Priorities in my Practice:

  • Accommodating my patient's scheduling needs-whenever possible
  • Carefully listening to my patient's needs, questions and concerns
  • Empathizing with my patient
  • Making my office staff available for patient education
  • Using terminology that is appropriate for each patient's needs

I Believe in the Importance of these Factors in the Care of my Patients:

  • 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
  • Staying abreast of breakthroughs and developments in my specialty
