Philosophy of Medicine

"In short, the patient comes first. I do my very best to address the needs of the patient and their family. This requires a multidisciplinary team that I am just one part of. This includes but is not limited to the patient and their family, primary care, subspecialists depending on the patients' needs, and allied health including therapies and nursing. Treating the whole patient results in the best outcomes."
