CLINICAL BACKGROUND AND MY APPROACH TO CARE

Deciding to trust a health care provider with your or your family’s health needs is a leap of faith. You research the physician’s background, training, experience, and ratings from other patients and rating services. Then you meet and hope for a good bedside manner as well as competence. Our approach is to provide you or your family member with expert, professional, compassionate and transparent health care. We give you all the time you need for questions and explanations. Difficult problems require deliberate, sometimes unique, solutions. Often multi-specialty team care is required for the most complex problems. We involve other team providers, our patient and family in treatment decisions. Our goal is to provide the best possible care with the least possible burden of care. It is an honor to be trusted to work with you to improve your health.
