Philosophy of Medicine

"I approach patients with heartfelt empathy and an open mind. I treat each patient with the same kindness and respect I feel for my loved ones. I believe that through a trusting relationship and good communication, I can positively impact a patient's health by giving them the tools they need to become their own advocate for maintaining a healthful life."
