Patient Care Philosophy
I feel that optimal health is reached through a working partnership between patients and providers. These partnerships require safety, respect and empathy and the healthcare provider having regard for each individual’s needs and desires around the healthcare experience.
As a nurse practitioner, it is my passion to work towards creating these partnerships with the goal of creating effective and meaningful relationships with individuals.
