Philosophy of Care

“I recognize the importance of a strong physician-patient relationship and strive to build such a bond with each patient. I emphasize a team approach to patient care to accomplish shared goals, and I individualize each patient care plan to fit their individual needs. I practice with a strong belief in striving for excellence regardless of limitations while also understanding the unique challenges faced by each patient. I help patients overcome obstacles to optimize their overall health outcomes with the goal of reducing the risk of future adverse health problems.”
