Philosophy of care:
I have three main goals when I take care of patients. I first try to address my patients’ concerns by listening to their history, reviewing examination findings and related testing. My second goal is to educate my patients as much as possible as to the etiology of their problem, discuss up-to-date medical information, and to review potential risks and benefits of available testing and treatment options. Most importantly, my goal is to provide the best short- and long-term healthcare.
