Care Philosophy

My overall care philosophy is to treat patients in the manner that I would wish to be treated. For me, this encompasses a combination of data-driven decision making and careful patient education. This gives the patient the best opportunity to make well-informed decisions about their care in partnership with me as their provider. My goal is to always provide the safest, simplest solution taking into account the patient’s clinical scenario as a whole.
