Philosophy Of Care

It is my goal to provide each patient I see with top-notch care. I value the doctor-patient relationship. The patient is a partner in his or her care. It is important to educate the patient so he or she has an understanding of what the medical problem is and how it should be treated. I have each patient try to identify the goals he or she wants to achieve and we work together to get optimal results. I have each patient try to identify the goals they want to achieve in regard to their healthcare.
