    Philosophy of Care

    I try to educate all of my patients regarding their condition and options available for treatment. I am a conservative surgeon meaning that if you would have the same outcome with and without surgery, I would prefer the non-surgical route. You know that if I recommend surgery it is in your best interests. I work with a "team" of PA's (physician assistants) and medical assistants to coordinate your care for the best possible outcome.
