About this doctor:

Philosophy of Care
I treat patients with respect, dignity, and an open-mind. I offer evidence-based medical recommendations and weigh the risks and benefits along side my patients before any decision is made. I am understanding in regards to patients’ preferences of treating different diagnoses. I encourage family members to join in our discussions on difficult decisions and value a multi-disciplined approach to most problems. I attempt to provide timely responses to patient concerns as well as updates on lab tests quickly.
