    Philosophy of Care

    I consider it a privilege to interact with patients. I enjoy listening and learning as much as possible about my patients' experiences, including not only the symptoms they might currently be struggling with, but also the psychological and social factors that influence their daily lives. I strive to provide the best evidence-based medical care to my patients and keep up-to-date on the most current treatment options. I like to engage my patients in discussions about all the possible options for treatment, giving them the tools to make informed decisions about their care.
