    Philosophy of Care

    It is understandable to have some anxiety and apprehension when you are visiting your doctor or the hospital. I have always been impressed by how pediatricians make the medical visits less frightening for kids. My goal is to do the same for adults through communication, support, education, and empowerment. When patients trust their doctors, it is a privilege to me, and is part of what makes the patient-physician relationship so special. I want to ensure that patients know and understand their healthcare choices so together we can make the best decision for their health. I find it most satisfying when I can help and advise the patients with my expertise taking into consideration their needs and preferences.
