Philosophy Of Medicine
“The opportunity to connect with and care for patients is a privilege I am honored to have. I believe in building relationships with patients and treating each patient as a whole. My philosophy on medicine is that good healthcare comes from good teamwork, both between providers, and between the provider and the patient.”
