Patient Care Philosophy

My goal is to form a partnership with patients that is built on trust, compassion and shared decision making to ensure that their goals are met with respect to both their health care and quality of life.



I believe all patients are entitled to the most up to date knowledge and insight on their disease process so that they can make informed decisions and be actively engaged in their care.
