Philosophy of Care
I believe that patients deserve expert level care, as well as a comfortable relationship with their doctor that is built upon mutual trust and respect. Patients should have the opportunity to fully understand their condition and treatment options. Therefore, I encourage patients to ask questions and I do my best to provide clear, informative and thorough answers. These fundamental principles frame my approach to providing the best care to patients suffering from hand, upper extremity and general orthopedic problems. I chose to be an orthopedic surgeon because this specialty presents the opportunity to interact with people of all ages and from all walks of life. My passion for orthopedic surgery and improving patients' lives enables me to approach each day with the enthusiasm and drive to deliver the utmost quality of care. I was fortunate to train at one of the nation's most elite and comprehensive centers, the Curtis National Hand Center. Throughout this training, I gained tremendous experience managing all types of conditions ranging from those that are common and straightforward, to those that are the most complicated and challenging. I am thrilled to use this expertise to best serve my patients.
