Philosophy of Care
My approach to patient care is one borne out of respect for the patient as a person and not only a diagnosis. I will endeavor to be an ally to patients in managing their surgical issues and to provide the best possible surgical care. All of these tenets will be coupled with the local knowledge that comes from being a Santa Cruz native.
