Philosophy of Medicine

"My decision to practice medicine came from experiences I had as a child with my grandmother's battle with cancer. I try to approach patients as if they were my family member; I think that it helps patients feel more at ease. I am a big proponent of shared decision-making so that my patients and I can make a plan of care together."
