Patient Care Philosophy
I know hospitalization can be a very unsettling time for both my patients and their families. In addition to providing and coordinating the best medical care possible, I want to make sure I take the time to hear my patients' concerns and what they feel is most important to improve their quality of life. I believe that only when patients are fully informed of the medical situation and their treatment options are we able to work together to achieve the best medical outcome possible.
My clinical interests include care of the hospitalized patient, evidence- and outcome-based medicine, and palliative care.
