Philosophy Of Medicine
“It is quite simple: treat others as I would want to be treated. It is my goal that every patient who leaves my office feels that they have had my undivided attention, were truly listened to and their needs and concerns were addressed. Patients are at the center of their health care. I can advise them of different options, but they are the ones who share the most in the final decision making process.”
