About this doctor:

Philosophy of Care
My philosophy of care – consistent with the mission, vision and values of Keck Medical Center – is achieving excellence in the delivery of patient care while ensuring patient safety. At the Center for Advanced Lung Disease, I am always there for my patients and their families, treating them as one of my family members, respecting them regardless of race, color, age, sex, creed, national origin, economic status or physical disability. I provide them and their family with physical, emotional, psychological, social and spiritual support, as well as an excellent education about their healthcare problems.

It is my belief that every patient has the right to know the truth about his/her condition and that it is my duty to prepare patients for these truths and for their participation in decisions regarding their care.
