    Philosophy of Care

    My main goal is to provide compassionate and respectful care while keeping patients as safe as possible.

    I try to be a good listener so that I understand all of the concerns. Then I give information and guidance regarding possible treatment options so that patients can make the best decisions for themselves.

    Finally, I provide technically skilled, experienced, and state-of-the-art surgical care. I advocate strongly for my patients every step of the way so they receive the best care possible.
